A Bloomer High School family and consumer sciences/health teacher has been named a 2021 National Merit Finalist by a national organization, according to a UW-Stout article.

Charlene Kelley says she enjoys teaching life skills.

“Everything I teach is practical,” Kelley told UW-Stout. “They will be able to use it every day. It’s one thing to choose to buy food that is already premade or to eat in a restaurant, but I want them to have a choice and have the skills to make a meal at home. It is practical knowledge I know they are going to use in their future.”

Read the UW-Stout article to learn more, including her work teaching about financial literacy, food insecurity and poverty.
