Brenda Glaser

Brenda Glaser is the South Hardin Middle School Family and Consumer Sciences teacher. She said it's a way for her to help students apply what they learn in other classes and apply them to life outside of school.

Thirty years ago, Brenda Glaser’s South Hardin Middle School students may have been threading a sewing machine or stirring ingredients for a cake. But that’s the old Home Ec. One day recently, they were discussing ways to stop identity theft – in Family and Consumer Science.

Glaser said Home Economics began through a scientist named Ellen Swallow Richards in the 1800s. There were many others involved in the evolution of Home Economics, whose efforts created associations and helped pass federal acts which provided funding for vocational education in homemaking, agriculture, and trades and industry.
