Hello! Welcome to another exciting year at Valley Springs High School!. Valley Springs is a wonderful community with wonderful people of all ages (including students!), and I am grateful for the opportunity to be here.
Many will agree that Family & Consumer Sciences (aka: Home Economics) is a very important subject. I am passionate about it, and am thrilled to have the opportunity to share life skills with students here at Valley. Skills in nutrition, food preparation, resource management, housing, child development, clothing care & construction, and more will benefit all students, no matter what their futures hold.
I grew up in Huntsville, and had my first teaching job in Kingston. Most of my career has been in Springfield, Missouri, where I taught at Central High for many years. It is a breathe of fresh air to be back in northwest Arkansas, It feels like home!
I am looking forward to a wonderful year celebrating the terrific students of Valley Springs. We hope to increase the activity of our FCCLA (Family, Career, & Community Leaders of America) club. More students will have opportunity to grow, experience, & learn.
Here’s to a great 2017-2018!
