My philosophy of FACS is to prepare you for all of the practical aspects of life. When you leave my class it is my hope that you have mastered these skills:
Working as a team member with all kinds of people.
Working safely in the kitchen.
Using a recipe to prepare healthy, nutritious meals.
Caring for children as a caregiver or a parent.
Using a sewing machine to complete a basic sewing project.
Using a hand sewing needle and other tools to repair clothing.
Using financial resources responsibly.
Using advertising to make good buying decisions.
Exploring options for future careers.
Over the 20 weeks you will spend in FACS we will engage in many activities to master these skills. My emphasis is on hands-on activities and projects in the classroom that can be used at home as well.
