Rice, Kady - Family & Consumer Science

Image of Family Consumer Science

    My name is Kady Grogan-Rice and I am extremely excited to be teaching  in the FACS department!!  I am a graduate of Western Carolina University where I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in Communications Training and Development. I  received my Masters in Executive Leadership (Educational Administration) from Gardner-Webb.  I am also certified in Family Consumer Science Secondary Education, Consumer Education and I am a National Restaurant Association ServSafe Certified Instructor. I am a Leicester native where I was born and raised on a farm.  I attended Leicester Elementary School, Erwin Middle, and graduated from Erwin High.  I am so blessed to be "back home" in the Erwin district to give back to the community; where I was inspired by dynamic teachers to become an educator !

     I feel like teaching runs deep in my family roots. I started my teaching career in elementary education where I taught 5th grade for four years.  I am extremely blessed to currently be teaching in the best department CTE can offer.  The "icing" on the cake is having my sister as a co-worker in the FACS department!! I have several family members who also have the best job in world...a teacher! 

  I am a mountain girl at heart who loves to be outside in the great outdoors.  But, that beach calls my name every summer!  I enjoy baking, DYI home improvements, hiking, camping, fishing, horseback riding, any type of sport, and spending quality time with my family.
