My name is April Smith, Family and Consumer Sciences teacher, and I am really excited to welcome you and your student to my classroom this year. I graduated from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. In August of 2000, I started teaching at Forest Hills. Currently, I teach eight FCS courses throughout the school year including Fab Foods I, Fab Foods II, Cafe' Du Jour, Nutrition & Wellness, Stitch - N - Style, Practical Parenting, Interior Design, and Life & Relationships. I am also the junior class advisor and prom advisor.
I am looking forward to meeting each and every student in my classes and their parents/guardians too. This year will be exciting for students at Forest Hills! Get involved in something! I am planning lessons and activities to develop the student's independent living skills and abilities as well as fostering independent thinking and problem solving. I hope to make this academic year educational and relevant, as well as fun-filled for the students.
If you would like to discuss your student's performance or any other issues, you can feel free to call or email me. Please put your student's name in the subject (I delete mail I do not recognize).
