Welcome to Nutrition and Food Science! We will complete many activities throughout the year to gain mastery towards the standards. We will complete cooking labs, as well as other projects to gain understanding about our interactions with food and nutrition principles. I will update the calendar with an overview of what is going on in class, however we will utilize the Google Classroom for uploading assignments and posting attachments. Please log into your Google Classroom to share our classwork with your parents. I look for to working with the students and seeing the amazing work they produce in the kitchen and in the classroom!

After graduating from Alexander High School in 2002, I attended The University of Georgia to major in Consumer Economics. I graduated from UGA in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Consumer Economics.  In 2007, I began teaching Family and Consumer Sciences in other Georgia school districts before returning to Douglas County. I completed my Master of Education in Secondary Education from Grand Canyon University in 2010 and I have been teaching Nutrition and Food Science in Douglas County since 2011.  

I have planning until 10:00 am, so you may call my room until that time 770 651-6778.

After this time, it is best to reach me by email: [email protected]
