Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Jennifer Blackburn and I am excited to begin a new career in the Family and Consumer Science classroom. I began my teaching career in Visual Arts but have made the exciting switch to the FCS classroom. I teach in both the middle (grades 6, 7, + 8), and high school, (Intro to Culinary + Food Science).
Prior to teaching, I worked in the Commercial Art field in Graphic Design.
I am super excited to also be teaching a new class beginning in the Fall called Intro to Design which is a project-based, hands on course which will expose students to a variety of design subject areas including but not limited to: interior design - the application of the elements and principles of design in decorating, furniture arrangement and floor plans; textile design – the process of creating designs used for fabrics; fashion design – the art of applying design, aesthetics and natural beauty to clothing and its accessories; architectural design – the art and science of designing buildings and (some) non-building structures; and graphic design – the process of visual communication and problem-solving through the use of typography, photography and illustration.
