Sr. High FACS Website:

     I have been teaching Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) at Blue Earth Area since 1987. I graduated with  high honors from Mankato State University with a FACS Education Bachelor of Science Degree.  I have taught a variety of courses grades 6-12.
     I advised FCCLA at the local, region and state level for 20 years, as well as student council and Yellow Ribbon groups for several years. Student leadership and service learning are two important components of my teaching philosophy.
     Life skills such as communication, healthy choices, healthy relationships, career planning and resource management are the basic building blocks for the FACS department and for life! In addition, FACS classes apply many reading, math, science, and social science skills and strategies to every day life experiences we use in our homes, families, communities and careers.
