I am going on my 4th year as a Family and Consumer Science teacher for a high school. I have taught Human Services, Lifetime nutrition and wellness, Principles of Hospitality and Tourism, Career Prep, Interpersonal Studies, Dollars and Sense and Culinary Arts. I have helped write curriculum for Lifetime nutrition and wellness as well as interpersonal studies.
I am a firm believer that if a teacher is doing more work than the student then something needs to change. My teaching style would have to be cooperative learning. I plan lessons that incorporate group work and discussions that will build a community within the classroom.
I went to Texas State University in San Marcos and went into education with a focus in human services. I currently work at a high school as a family and consumer science teacher. Since working, I have learned new strategies, techniques and some great lessons from veteran teachers.
I am a teacher, FCCLA advisor and I love my job!
