    Welcome to Wren High School's Family and Consumer Sciences Department!
    Real Skills for Real Life! 
    Parents, have you ever thought "I wish they still had Home Ec in school"?  Well we do!!  It's just updated with the times and needs of today's students!  And with an updated curriculum we have an updated name- Family & Consumer Sciences (also known as FCS or FACS).
    The FACS program is designed to empower individuals to manage the challenges of living and working in a diverse global society.  The classes we teach prepare students for the rest of their lives.  Our classes focus on families - including relationships, parenting, cooking, nutrition, and money management. 
    To give you a little background, I spent my early years in Hong Kong, China where I gained my love of international foods.  When I was eight years old, we moved to Georgia where I later graduated from Rockdale County High School in Conyers, Georgia.  I met my husband at college in Tennessee and we moved to South Carolina after graduation.  We have two wonderful children - a girl and a boy.  I have been working at Wren High School since 1995. 
    Educational Background: 
    Bachelors Degree in Home Economics Education from The University of Tennessee at Martin, 1994
    Masters Degree in Education- Concentration in School Leadership from Furman University, 2001
