Ms. Christy Barbour
My name is Christy Barbour. I am a 1990 graduate of South Johnston High School and a 1993 graduate of Campbell University with a BS in Home Economics. I have been teaching Foods and Nutrition for 22 years and 17 of those here at West Johnston High School. Go Wildcats!!! I have 2 daughters, Alyssa (20) and Anna (17).
I LOVE teaching Foods classes!! I tell my students from the beginning that I am not a CHEF.....I am a "COOK"! I have no culinary background other than the knowledge I have gained through teaching Foods and Nutrition classes. I love to cook and I love sharing my knowledge with my students to help them be successful in the kitchens, because we all have to eat....right? It is amazing to see the pride that bursts from students when they prepare a food from scratch!!
In my spare time, I love working in my yard and I love spending my summers at the beach!
Hope everyone had a great summer! I am looking forward to meeting and working with you this semester. Here is the fall schedule and classroom codes:
