    Welcome to Wren High School's Family and Consumer Sciences Department!  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.

    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
