Miss Coolidge

My name is Kaila Coolidge, and I am the Family and Consumer Sciences teacher at Hutto Middle School. Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) is just a fancy way to describe what is previously known as "Home Economics". No matter what you choose to call it, the bottom line is the same.
The classes I teach prepare students for the big test... LIFE!
My goal is to empower my students to take control of their lives and make healthy choices to reach their potential. By the time they leave my classroom, they will be better prepared for the multiple roles they will encounter in their future-- roles including a family member, wage earner, and community leader.
The courses I teach are 7th and 8th Grade Teen Leadership.
