Besides being with my family, teaching and working with students is what I love to do! As a graduate from University of Missouri-Columbia and Fontbonne University, my knowledge and passion in Career Technical Education (CTE) and Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) is evident in our daily lessons, interactions, and professional growth in the Parkway School District. I believe students should be college and career ready based upon industry skills and standards. In our FACS classes, we focus on competencies, skills, and work ethic standards for the real world. Students are engaged, hands on, and enhancing their critical thinking skills as they transfer their knowledge to authentic experiences of the work world. Students learn critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication, cooperation, self direction and transfer skills. We work closely with industry leaders to ensure students are prepared for success in school, outside of school and beyond graduation.
Important Grading, Infinite Campus, and Late Work Policy:
- If a student does not turn in an assignment on the due date, it will be marked "Missing" and student loses daily work ethic points.
- Students have seven (7) days from the due date to improve, turn in and resubmit work.
- When the student turns in the assignment within the seven (7) day window, it will be marked "Late".
- Any work completed outside of the seven (7) day window, will need to wait until the FACS AID date (TBD) every six weeks.
- When a student attends FACS AID, they are to submit all assignments being regraded, work quietly, and stay the entire time required.
