Biography

Hi! I'm the Family and Consumer Science Teacher.  This is my ninth year of teaching and my first year at Hiatt Middle School. 6, 7 & 8th graders learn about finances, careers, the human body, sewing, and food through a variety of hands on activities.  Every class has access to our amazing Community Garden as well! I'm looking forward to many fantastic learning experiences with our students.
