This summer Learning ZoneXpress has been asking teachers how they are keeping FACS Alive in their classrooms and schools. We were thrilled with the response and are happy to share the stories. We would love to hear from you! Help us spread the awareness of FCS in the classroom today and share your story with us. Long live “Home Ec”!
As our student population changes and the understanding that not all young adults go to college we are in demand even more. I am proud to say I am a FCS teacher with the East Brunswick school district and love what I do. I teach a basic culinary class open to students with all levels of cooking skills. I also teach Preschool lab which is a very unique course. This course has preschool on the grounds and we the "teachers" teach our high school students to teach. They ultimately become student teachers and are responsible for teaching the preschoolers. It is a yearlong course and a double period open to both junior and seniors. We are currently adding a new course Teaching Practicum to our course selection. This class will be offered for the first time in January and will allow the students to go out into the field and work with our teaching staff. This program is based out of South Carolina and is their teaching cadet program.
