teaching in public school since 1995 & have taught every subject in
FACS except for Culinary Arts. I graduated from East Carolina University
and am National Board Certified.
is my 7th year teaching in Buncombe County. After teaching Foods &
Nutrition for 2 years at Community High School, I was given the
opportunity to teach Apparel & Interiors at Owen. I am very excited
to come back to my passion of design & sewing. I began teaching FACS in 1995 in
Wilmington, NC. I love interior design, sewing and creating things that
are one of a kind. I have decided that I am truly happy when I am
creating something. Other hobbies that I have are travel, technology,studying different cultures and people in general.
am married to William Elliott. We have two daughters, and 2 beautiful granddaughters. (my grandma name is Queenie)
was in the US Peacecorps in Jamaica after graduating from ECU &
then taught on a Navajo Indian reservation in New Mexico. I've taught
art in a private middle school and PE in a Dept. of Defense middle
school. I have been the advisor for many different clubs including International club & ball
hockey coach!! Placing high school foreign exchange students since 1989
has given my husband and I many "daughter"s around the world. We have
visited many countries and want to visit more.
forgot to mention one of the most relevant passions that I have:
teaching and listening to teenagers. That's why I am here; to contribute
to the total education of our students.
