WELCOME to Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS)! As a classroom teacher with 31 years experience (27 years in the Acorn Public School, now a part of Ouachita River District), I am a lifelong learner and dedicated educator whose primary goal is to help students recognize and develop their potential. The Family and Consumer Sciences curriculum and the Career Technical Student Organization (CTSO), Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), offers students the opportunities to attain success through development of their creative and critical thinking skills, vocational preparation, personal growth, and academic achievement. Truly the FACS curriculum and involvement in FCCLA can help students apply academics to life skills that will propel them to prosper in every aspect of their lives-socially, physically, intellectually, emotionally, and morally. The opportunity is there and my desire is that each student will seize that opportunity, take responsibility for their learning, and exceed expectations to become positive, productive members of society.
