• Welcome to Family and Consumer Sciences at Shelburne Middle School!


    I am Mrs. Folks and I am excited to be apart of the SMS Team this year! This is my 10th year at Shelburne and look forward to having a great school year.
    A Little About Me 
    I grew up in Botetourt County, Virginia and graduated from James River High School. I then attended and graduated from Bridgewater College. While at Bridgewater, I met my wonderful husband Justin and we were married in June 2007.  My husband was raised in Staunton and graduated from R.E. Lee HS.  We have three sons, Barrett, Wyatt and Callen. 
    I started my teaching career at Stuarts Draft Middle School, teaching FCS for two years.  Then, My husband and I had a crazy idea to move to Corpus Christi, TX for him to pursue his master's degree in Wildlife Management. While we were in Texas I taught Family and Consumer Sciences at Ray High School for three years. Upon my husband's graduation, We moved back to Virginia in June 2012  and were very happy to return to the Staunton Area.  
    In my free time I enjoy watching sports (Baseball, Football, NASCAR), reading, cross stitching and watching reality TV shows. I am happiest when I am around my family and friends. Items on my Bucket List include: Visiting all 50 States, Attending a game in all 30 MLB ballparks with my husband (5 down), and Going Skydiving :)
    Student and Parents, please feel free to email me at dfolks@staunton.k12.va.us anytime you need anything or have questions.
