Invitation to Attend

The Ohio Association of Family & Consumer Sciences Board selected the 2020 conference theme, “The Power of One” Encouraging Sustainable Living.  It is the vision of the American Association of Family & Consumer Sciences to be “recognized as the driving force in bringing people together to improve the lives of individuals, families, and communities” (AAFCS, 2010).  This emphasis on individuals and families and its well-established presence in American schools and communities, affirms that Family & Consumer Sciences programs are a logical discipline to promote consumer and environmental sustainability with the family.

 

All of the invited speakers have a national reputation with a practical approach that will address Ohioans needs. The overall goal of this year’s conference is to educate and introduce attendees to know how to collectively advance consumer and environmental sustainability.

APPLYING PRACTICAL REASONING TO SOLVE THE FUTURE OF FOOD

Marybeth Motasem, Family & Consumer Sciences Educator, Bexley, Ohio Schools

Marybeth Motasem has spent the past 17 years teaching Family and Consumer Sciences in both suburban and rural school districts in Ohio.  Marybeth has taught every subject taught under the umbrella of Family and Consumer Sciences, but for the past seven years has focused in on the subjects of personal finance, nutrition, and food science.  Marybeth strongly believes in creating connections between the foods we eat, and the food we grow.  She has embedded this belief in her classroom practices and in the 8 raised-bed garden she oversees along with her Garden Club students.  It is not uncommon to walk into Marybeth’s classroom on any given day and see students problem solving solutions to some of our world’s issues like how to reduce food waste, using resources more efficiently, and shifting our diets to more sustainable food sources.  When Marybeth is not at school, she enjoys spending time with her family watching soccer, going on nature hikes, and doing lots of cooking.
