CTE - Career & Technology Education

Welcome to Family and Consumer Sciences! I am Mrs. Franklin! This year, I am teaching Parenting & Child Development and Early Childhood Professions, Teen Living and Foods & Nutrition. I love teaching Family and Consumer Sciences classes and getting students involved in hands-on learning.
My Family and Consumer Sciences journey began in High School when, as a student, I took a Foods class that created my passion for all these Family Consumer Science. I have a BS degree in Family Consumer Science Education and Elementary Education with a minor in Library Science.
This is my thirteenth year as a FCS teacher. My husband (Sam Franklin) are both teachers here at the Ridge. Growing up in Alaska taught me to be creative and resourceful. Therefore, I cannot wait to challenge and inspire this year’s class of FCS students. I am lifelong learner, and it my goal to is constantly challenging myself to improve student learning, keep students motivated and engaged and make learning a lifelong enjoyment. I want all students to be successful, and I feel that I offer a classroom environment that is conducive to success.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns, or suggestions that you may have. You may email me for the quickest response, but feel free to contact me at school as well.
