Hello, my name is Karen Phelon, I am the Family and Consumer Science teacher at Marais des Cygnes Valley High School. I currently teach Human Growth and Development, Lifetime Foods, and Intro to Family and Consumer Science. I seem to be more excited about my area of teaching more and more every year. I hope that your children will be able take the information from my classes and apply it to their everyday living after high school. I would like to share a little information about myself now. I received my degree from Pittsburg State University and moved to this area when I married my husband, Raylen Phelon. We live on a farm southwest of Melvern, and we raise soybeans, corn and wheat, and have a small heard of cattle. My husband also works off the farm at the Wolf Creek Nuclear Generating Station as an Electrical Supervisor. We have three children, Ashley and her husband Mike Beying live at Clay Center, Kansas, with our first grandson Caleb. Ashley is working towards her Nurse Practitioner Degree and her husband teaches Ag at Clay Center. Our son, Adam, graduated from KSU in Agricultural Economics and is currently working on the family farm. Our youngest daughter, Emily, graduated from KSU in Elementary Education and is teaching 3rd grade in Yates Center, Kansas. I am super excited about this school year and look forward to educating your children in the field of Family and Consumer Sciences. Mrs. Phelon
