I am currently a High School Family and Consumer Science teacher. I have taught Life Skills and Adulting 101 for the past 10 years. 
I have created a series of classes to help you get the most out of your high school years and prepare you for living on your own. Take one, take some, or take them all. Examples of what you can look forward to are classes on budgeting, career exploration, positive communication skills, time management and developing good study habits, coping with stress, and sewing, as well as some courses perfect for the high school senior like choosing the perfect roommate and renting your first apartment and cooking healthy meals on a budget, just to name a few. They say "Adulting is Hard" but it doesn't have to be!
Each week there will be a short activity posted to go along with that week's lesson.
Materials needed for this class: Paper and writing instrument for taking notes and writing out goals. Supplies for a vision board. If learners want to create their vision board on paper or poster they will need: 1. construction paper or poster board, a piece of white copy paper will work as well. 2. scissors 3. glue 4. colored markers or colored pencils Learners may want to create their vision board using an online program such as Slides, Docs, Canva, or any other program they are familiar with that will allow them to create a poster. I have used Canva and Google Slides to create posters in the past and they work well.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Assignments can be turned in at the end of each week for feedback. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
