Philosophy of Teaching:

Family and Consumer Science is a discipline where we are building life long learners
while creating a safe and enjoyable environment. I as an FCS teacher I like to stay
disciplined, have fun and encourage collaboration and teamwork.

No race can prosper till it learns that there is as much dignity in tilling a
field as in writing a poem.
