Welcome to the Family and Consumer Science Department! I am very excited to be returning to teaching after 13 years of being a stay at home mother of three children. I am looking forward to sharing my love of the subject area with my students.Family and Consumer Sciences is defined at the science and art of teaching career planning, job skills, resource management, time management, nutrition, food preparation, menu planning, parenting, substance abuse, child care and development, healthy living, clothing and textiles, consumer education, decision making, problem solving, human relationships, family development, and anything else that touches the home and heart. In other words, LIFE 101.I graduated from Godley High School as salutatorian of class of 1988. I earned my Bachelor's of Science degree from Tarleton State University in 1992. My first teaching experience was in Western Hills High School for Ft. Worth ISD. I taught four years at Western Hills and earned my Master's Degree in Education with emphasis in Early Childhood and Special Education simultaneously. In 1996, I taught grades 6-8 special education for Valley View ISD. This will be my third year teaching FCS at Lindsay High School, teaching Principles of Human Service, Career Preparation I & II, Lifetime Nutrition and Wellness, and Child Development.
