Welcome to NCHS FACS! I am one of the FACS teachers at the high school, and I teach Principles of Family and Human Services, Parenting and Child, and Interiors I, II,III. My first career I was a textile designer, and worked for the largest textile manufacturer in the U.S. A few years ago when business began to go overseas I was faced with a decision to plan ahead and change careers. I had a desire to work with young teens, and to help guide them in positive directions.I was hired at Newton Conover High School over ten years ago as a lateral entry teacher. I started working on my teaching license, and teaching at the same time. I was an overwhelmed young lady, but I knew if I could handle the pressure it was where I wanted to be. I have enjoyed my years in teaching, and always look forward to the new students. My motto is if I can touch one student or bring a smile to a student I'm doing the right things. I care for my students, and I love to see them grow into responsible young adults.
I am the FCCLA advisor, and I hope you will check out the club. It focuses on leadership,family, and community involvement. Welcome to Red Devil Country!
