    Welcome to Family and Consumer Sciences at Frenchtown High.  This is a very exciting year for us as we  have full schedule of FCS classes awaiting you to expand your creative potential in our  Culinary Arts, Textile and Apparel, Housing Environment, Prep for life and Child Development  curriculum.  We are looking forward to sharing our learning experiences with you so please feel free to contact us with any comments and/or suggestions. 
    Be sure to ask about our service oriented leadership organization "FCCLA" Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America.   We have in- school meetings at lunchtime.  This is a great opportunity to gain some experience in organizations.  FCCLA is a well recognized organization by those judging for scholarships.  It also is a good chance to show your leadership ability at a state competion in Billings in March.  We always encourage district leaders.  A district president automatically earns the right to attend a National meeting.

    I was born and raised in Ohio in a small ethnic mining community.  I was fortunate enough to live outside of town on a small farm surrounded by woods and fields and streams.  A wonderful home for a family of 14.  I was also fortunate enough to be one of the youngest in this large family.  This gave me lots of role models and plenty of encouragement for continuing my education.  I graduated from Kent State University with a degree in Family and Consumer Sciences and have taught in Ohio, Arizona, and for the last twenty four years in several schools in Montana.  I am an active member in my professional organizations.  I was the 2003 president of Montana Associate of Career and Technical Educators Family and Consumer Science division .  The 2004 MACTE Family and Consumer Science teacher of the year.  The Teacher of the Year for  2005 for The Association of Career and Technical Educators.  A top five regional finalist in 2006 for the ACTE districtV Association of Career and Technical Educators representing 10 Western States,in Omaha, Ne.
