I have been teaching at Barron High School since 2006. I graduated from UW Stout in Menomonie with a B.S. degree in Family and Consumer Sciences Education with a minor in Health Education. My M.A. is from Fielding Graduate School in CA in Collaborative Education. At BHS I teach a variety of Family and Consumer Science classes - Personal Finance, Food Science, Foods with Flair, Foods for Teens, Advanced Foods, Parent & Child, HERO/COOP, Housing, and Clothing & Design.
Family and Consumer Sciences Education empowers individuals and families throughout their lives to manage the challenges of living and working in a diverse, global society. The challenges individuals face throughout their lives include balancing personal, home, family and work lives; acquiring marketable skills to be successful in life management (21st century skills), employment, and career development; promoting optimal nutrition and wellness; and managing resources to meet the material needs of individuals and families.
Family and Consumer Sciences can give individuals the practical knowledge, critical and creative thinking skills to address problems in diverse family, community, and work environments.
I am also the FCCLA (Family, Career, Community Leaders of America) advisor. FCCLA offers a variety of community service and leadership opportunities and well as competitive events (STAR events).
My husband and I live in Dallas with our children. I enjoy camping, gardening, cooking, reading, and following my children in the many activities they are involved in.
