The Warsaw Area Career Center is proud to welcome back Ms. Caitlin Dian as an additional full-time FACS Teacher.

Caitlin graduated from Ball State University with a degree in Vocational/FACS Education.

She is teaching Interpersonal Relationships, Adult Roles and Responsibilities, Preparing for College and Careers, and Interior Design. IPR is her favorite because communication skills are important and she has discovered that many adults have never learned this valuable skill.

Caitlin shared a little bit more about herself below. Welcome back to the WCS family, Caitlin!

“I like horror movies, documentaries about true crimes, listening to audiobooks (preferably murder mysteries, good food, snuggling with my dog, going to Indy Wrestling shows, and Halloween.
 The important people/pets in my life include Joel (partner in crime), Kobain (stepson 8), Burt (dog/my baby), and Rhiannon, Bowie, & Ali (cats).
Favorite food: Anything cheese, covered in cheese, cheese... Mexican food will forever make me happy, mostly because a lot of it is covered in queso.... don't judge me on my love of cheese!
Color: Black
 Games: Anomia, left-right-center, deer in the headlights, pass the pigs, BANG!
Interesting fact: I am allergic to pork (I live a rough life without bacon, no turkey bacon is not the same)
Also-I do a 31 days of Halloween when October hits, so be ready for those outfits!”

Mrs. Lancaster's Adult Roles & Responsibilities classes had the opportunity to participate in community led interviews on Monday. We had 75 students being interviewed by 21 Community Leaders. There were teachers, Counselors, Mutual Bank, Depuy, The Sheriff's Office, The Winona Lake Fire Department, Zimmer Biomet, Tree of Life, and Grace College representatives.

This marks the 6th year Mrs. Lancaster has hosted this event and it was the best-by far!! Students dressed for success, created resumes and got REAL life experience! We love our Community Leaders and their time and abilities that they graciously give each semester to our students.

Chef Bragg's Advanced Culinary students had the opportunity to tour Krider's Meat Processing facility in Columbia City last Friday. Each student also picked out a steak of their choice and came back to the Blue Apron to prepare them. Special thanks to Krider's for hosting this tour!
