Mrs. Sarah Thorjusen
Hello! My name is Sarah Thorjusen. I teach Family and Consumer Science (FaCS) at Foley Middle School. In 8th grade the FaCS course is called Teen Connections. I believe this course is an intricate part of every student’s education. Not only does it focus on life skills and soft skills that are a necessity in today’s work force, but it prepares and assists students on deciding their high school courses and post high school pathway by introducing them to many various core skills and careers.
I am a Highly Qualified (HQ) teacher in the state of Alabama in Family and Consumer Science and English. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in English and Creative Writing with a minor in History. I also have a Master of Education degree in Interdisciplinary Studies for Curriculum and Instruction. I have taught English Language Arts courses in middle school, high school and in college.
My husband also teaches at Foley Middle School and we have two daughters. I absolutely love my job and have a ton of fun working with your kiddos everyday. I feel blessed that my family is part of such a wonderful, loving community.
It’s GREAT to be a LION!!!!
