Mrs. Melanie Darter

Hello!  I love what I do as a Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) teacher and Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) adviser at EHS. This is my 19th year at EHS, where I have the unique opportunity to help my students develop "Real Skills for Real Life."  
I began my career as an FCS teacher in San Antonio, where I taught for almost 15 years, before my family moved to Colorado.  My parents are both Colorado natives, so I feel very much at home here in Elizabeth.  My husband and I love the wide open spaces and sense of community, which made it a great place to raise our children, who are both EHS graduates.  
If you are in Culinary I, Child Development,  Intro. to Design, Personal Living, or Teacher Cadet, you are in the right place to find more information about my classes. Here you will find announcements and links to each of my individual classes, Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) information, and other interesting information.
