    Update: March 30, 2020!  Well now I am really missing you!!!  For today, March 30, just finish all the assignments that are due tomorrow.  I am not sure, but I think those will go on the fourth nine weeks.  I will post the assignments for the rest of the week later today.  From now on, per district guidelines, I will have my assignments posted on Thursday for the next week.  Students in Global Foods should work to finish anything they are missing from the third nine weeeks.  Email me or message me on Google classrom if you need help, or if you just want to say Hi!  I am looking at those communications all day and night, too.  I am proud to have each and every one of you as a student in my class!  I will help you in any way possible.  Also, be patient with me on the technology. (haha!)  If you see a problem let me know!


    **** Coronavirus Closing Assignment*****

    I will be missing all of you! I am so sad that school is closed, but hopefully you will enjoy our online assignments on Google Classroom!  If you did not get a code for Food Science Google classroom on Friday, then email me as I will give you the code. I will check my email frequently for questions.  Stay safe and know that I am thinking of each and every one of you each day! Follow the these guidelines for completing assignments:

    Read through the instructions
    Complete the assignment
    Email me with any questions
    Submit the assignment by the due date

    ***Keep up the good work.  All assignments for this past week will not be due until the Tuesday after "spring break".   I will try to add more visuals and perhaps a cooking demonstration in the coming weeks.  Some of you in Global Foods have work to complete from previous lessons.  Make sure you submit the work by the day as above.  I just hate teaching a foods class like this, but like I said, I will work on some more exciting lessons!  *****



    Program Overview

    Welcome to Family and Consumer Science.  The goals of our program at Tippecanoe High School include helping our students attain skills in management, problem solving, leadership and communication.  Students are able to gain these basic skills through taking all of our classes which include Personal Finance, Nutrition and Wellness, Food Science, College and Career Readiness. Global Foods, and Child Development. We are providing our students with the skills needed to be successful in both work and family life now and in the future!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.



    Classroom Supplies:
    The supplies for my classes are minimal. They are as follows:
    • All students will need a folder with pockets
    • Paper or notebook and writing utensil

    I obtained my degree in Family and Consumer Science Education from The Ohio State University. I have completed the Teacher Leader program in Family and Consumer Science Education through the Ohio Department of Education and the Personal Finance Teacher Academy at Wright State University. I have been fortunate to be teaching at Tippecanoe High School since 1988.  I have a background in business, as I started out my career with KitchenAid as a test kitchen home economist. While working at KitchenAid, I worked with consumers and professionals to promote the marketing and use of the products.  This was a great training ground for teaching the nutrition and food preparation classes.   I am committed to providing quality Family and Consumer Science education to the students here at Tippecanoe High School.  I love working with high school students as they enter into the next steps in their lives.  In my spare time I enjoy jogging and running races (I use the term running loosely), gardening, going to auctions, and spending time with my family.

    Lesson Plans and further information about each class can be found on each class page.
