- Why I chose my major
When I was in high school, I took my first ever FACS class and fell in love with the pathway! I was raised around artists and knew I wanted to do something creative and I found that through fashion and interior design! I can now share my passion for TXMI with my students, giving them a safe environment to let their inner artists out.
- What I like most about FACS
What I like most about FACS is the fact that you are learning, and teaching others in my case, life skills that will benefit you in every corner of your life. This can be anything from nutrition to personal relationships to how you dress yourself! It is a wide range of subjects that help you be the best you that you can be.
- Post-graduation plans
I have accepted a position with Metro-Nashville Public Schools in Tennessee to create a brand new Fashion and Textile Pathway for high schoolers.
