I have been a FACS teacher for the past 15 years teaching students from 6th through 12th grades in both public and private school settings. I have a Master's degree in Family and Consumer Sciences Education and a Bachelor's degree in Family Social Sciences, both from the University of Minnesota. I'm very passionate about teaching my students the life skills needed to be independent. I also enjoy helping kids discover their career pathways, especially if it is within one of the areas of FACS. I live right here in Stillwater with my husband and 2 sons and I am very excited for the new school year to begin.
