As the professional field of family and consumer sciences (FCS) is constantly evolving based on societal demands, so does the preparation and role of FCS teacher educators. With a national shortage of both secondary FCS teachers and FCS teacher educators, new issues and concerns are occurring which requires us to re-imagine our role in the profession. As a member of the National Association of Teacher Educators of Family and Consumer Sciences or NATEFACS, I would encourage you to not only reach out to your fellow teacher educators, but also those that lead secondary programs at the state and local levels. Perhaps with all of us working together, we can populate the secondary classrooms with high quality FCS teachers, some of which will want to become teacher educators!Join in the conversation on Facebook at Teacher Educators of Family and Consumer Sciences.
