Mrs. Rebecca Whigham
Family Consumer Science Teacher
Grades: 6, 7, & 8
I am a life-long Bulldog who started subbing in the district while I was still in college. There is no place I would rather be! Teaching is a second career. I worked in Therapuetic Wilderness Education and most recently took time out of the workforce to raise my young children. My family lives in the district, and we love all the outdoor recreation the area has to offer.
Family and Consumer Science is Adulting 101. We are in the process of rebooting the curriculum which will cover sewing, mending, basic culinary skills, child development, all in ways that stay within budget, and minimizing the trash we make.
If you want to support the FCS program, please consider sending in Box Tops as well as downloading the new Box Top app, and select Big Spring Middle School. All proceeds will support the food purchases for the nutrition part of our course.
Over time, I hope to adapt this page to include the recipes we make as well as information to reference at home as a family. Check back to see updates.
