This class used to be known as Home Economics and traditionally taught cooking and sewing. Now along with the name change, we teach many of the skills your child will need to become a successful adult.
This is a fun class. Much of the learning is hands on and in-class. One thing I am extremely strict about is safety. I do not tolerate horsing around, disrespectful behavior and inappropriate use of equipment. If rules are not followed, consequences may result in a warning, phone call home, loss of cooking privileges or other disciplinary actions.
Cooking is a passion for me and I look forward to sharing it with the students. They will learn how to make bread, healthy after school snacks, and food items for all three meals and my personal favorite - dessert! Students can get extra credit for making any of the items we make in class at home. They just need a signed note from you saying that they cooked and cleaned up.
