Mom telling Santa what she wants for Christmas.

Mom telling Santa what she wants for Christmas.

At the end of my sophomore year at Auburn University (WAR EAGLE), I called my mom to discuss what I was going to declare for a major.  Home ec education or accounting were her two options to help me choose from.  In about 10 seconds, together, we decided it should be Home Ec Education.  After my first year of teaching, I went back to night school to start working on a degree in Accounting.  My students were bigger and more worldly than me and ate my lunch on a daily basis.  Marriage and children followed shortly after and I have spent the last 18 years as a happy homemaker.  I do love all things home ec-whether it is cooking, sewing, family, gardening, or taking on minor home and repair projects.  I will share the good, the bad and the ugly of my home pursuits and hopefully you will learn from my successes and mistakes.


Home Economics 101

October 16, 2009

Welcome to the home ec teacher blog.  I have a degree in Home Economics Education (it is now called Family and Consumer Science)  from Auburn University, but the best and most useful education  has come from on the job training right in my own home.  I hope to share with you my successes and mistakes to better your home making skills.   My ultimate goal is to get you to sit down and enjoy dinner and conversation with your family.  God Bless and Happy Homemaking!  Matthew  4:4
