Welcome to Family and Consumer Science! We will be focusing on many topics this year that are clearly skills necessary to be successful in life. We will learn about ourselves, our families, and communication. We will also learn how to manage money by using a checking account. We will learn how to be smart about money, what credit means, the pros and cons of credit. We will cook, learn about nutrition and the new my plate requirements (which replace the food pyramid). We will iron and we will learn how to hand sew. I look forward to working with you this year!
