Mrs. Guhl welcomes you to
the FACS website!
What is FACS? That is usually the first question that I am asked when I introduce myself and what I teach. FACS is an acronym for Family and Consumer Science or what use to be called Home Economics. Today's FACS classes cover a variety of subjects from budgeting, meal planning, listening skills, food preparation, housing and interior design, to child growth and development. Currently, I am teaching only part time and my classes are Foods and Nutrition, International Foods, Child Growth and Development, and Sewing and Textiles.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
- The average American will live to be about 80 years of age.
- We typically eat three meals a day and there are 365 days in a year. That means we are eating 87,6000 meals in our life time!
- We eat out about 4.2 times per week for the cost of around $173.00 to $180.00 per week! Over the course of one year that is $8,996.00!
- Why wouldn't you want and need to learn how to cook for yourself and your family?
