Jordan Parkinson: Future FACS Teacher
Occupational Goal: Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) Teacher
“My plan, after I finish my college education, is to become a FACS Exploration teacher in a public junior high. I know my background within CTE classes has prepared me well for this position. With all my experience sewing and cooking, I feel teaching FACS would be a good fit for me, because I have learned many things from my CTE teachers that I would love to share with others.
“I know I will be a great educator in the FACS area. I have applied many things I learned from my CTE teachers to my life, and believe [CTE] has truly helped me become who I am today.” —Jordan Parkinson, Layton High School
