Hello, My name is Kate Morrone. I am a Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) teacher at Bacon Academy. I currently teach early childhood development. I have an undergraduate degree in Communications with a minor in child psychology. I also am in the process of pursuing my masters in education with a concentration in technology education.
The reason I choose to become a teacher was because of my love of so many things in my life. My goal was to find a profession that I could take all these things and focus them into one place. Becoming a FCS teacher allows me to do this; family, friends, food, children, human development, hospitality, technology, creativity, social skills, leadership skills, and more. I have 20 years in the hospitality industry, 6 years as a recreation director in a sub-acute facility, 10 years in the television industry, 4 years as a mother, 21 years as an aunt, and a life time of interaction with people. Hopefully having all of these experiences will help me to continue to become a teacher that will provide students with a clear understanding of what it is they need to learn.
When I am not focused on all my aspects of school, I first and foremost enjoy hanging out with my son and husband. We mostly enjoy being outside doing whatever we can. We also have Friday night game night and we make sure every night we sit down to dinner together. Dinners together are one my favorite times because we get to talk about our day and the great things happening in our lives.
I have four sisters, one brother, a close aunt and a cousin (who is just like having a fifth sister), that I am very close to. We are always doing something together or having some kind of family functions. These are the times that there is almost guaranteed laughing going on.
I also enjoy playing golf in the summer, running, yoga, watching movies, vacationing, experiencing a wide variety of foods by eating out, hanging out with friends and family, and having a good time.
My mottos in life are; Life is going to happen the way life is going to happen, you just need to figure out how your going to do it Every moment in life is a cherished moment laughter is the best medicine. Everyone has the power to learn Everything is life provides you with a choice, and you are the only one who makes that choice.
