Welcome back to school! I’m  happy to have you in my Foods & Nutrition class.  I hope that you are ready to work hard and learn more about nutrition.  I have high expectations of each of you, and I will try to do my best to see that you are successful.  If you have questions, or just need help, please make an appointment to see me after school.  Tutoring is available Wednesdays from 2:45 – 3:30.  


Course Description:

This course examines the nutritional needs of the individual. Emphasis is placed on the relationship of diet to health, kitchen and meal management, food preparation and sustainability for a global society, and time and resource management. Skills in science, reading, and mathematics literacy are reinforced in this course. Work-based learning activities provide the opportunity to apply instructional competencies and workplace readiness skills through authentic experiences in the foods lab.
