Degrees and Certifications:
BS in Family and Consumer Science Education from the University of Alabama
I am Manda OConnell, and I teach Family and Consumer Sciences. I graduated from the University of Alabama in Family and Consumer Science Education, but I have a diverse work experience background. I taught FCS for 5 years in Hoover and loved it. Then I ran a home-based travel agency, worked in children's clothing, worked for a med-tech company, and worked for a financial planner. I am excited to be at Thompson High in the career that I believe I was meant to be in. I have 2 awesome children who are 16 and 20. I love to travel and experience new foods from around the work.
