Hi, my name is Takeebie Jefferson and I am a family and consumer science teacher. Now, I am no expert and am not even considered a veteran, however I do have a real passion for teaching FACS. I have been teaching for 7 years in middle school and high school settings. I don’t know whether this is a good or bad thing, but over those 7 years, I have taught in 5 different schools due to my husband being military. I will say that it has been a very unique, challenging but rewarding experience since I have had the opportunity to work at different types of schools and with students of several different socioeconomic statuses and backgrounds.
My main purpose for creating this site is to provide an invaluable resource mainly for FACS teachers due to the lack of resources available. But I also recommend sharing it with teachers of other subjects as well if they are looking for more creative ways of teaching their subjects and becoming more integrated with their CTE programs. I know the difficulty of being a FACS teacher all too well and I feel that any little thing that will make this position easier and less time demanding will be greatly appreciated. I’m hoping that this resource will help free up more of your time to be more creative and produce an environment to help better prepare our students for the real world.
Here at Just FACS you will find all types of resources ready to go and implement in your classroom, so feel free to use and tell others about the site as well. Also, please feel free to make any suggestions and voice your opinions and/or needs. This site is for us FACS professionals so let your voices be heard. I am only here to serve you, work with you, and inspire you. I will definitely be chatting with you soon.
