Joanna’s Hands-On Food Safety Education

Food safety is a key concept learned in classes taught by Joanna Fedor, Family and Consumer Science Teacher at Northridge High School in Greeley, Colorado. Joanna moves her students from little or no knowledge of  hand hygiene basics to a working knowledge of the why’s and how’s of food safety.

She uses interactive activities such as Glo-Germ for hand washing education and the free, science-based curricular materials at fightbac.org for teaching the basic four skills of clean, separate, cook and chill.

In addition, Joanna works with students on the culinary teams to prepare for competitions. These student chefs run food safety circles around most TV chefs!
