Welcome to the High School FACS page.  My name is Rochelle Gresafe, I am very happy to be a part of the Mahtomedi school community and I'm looking forward to a great year.  I've been teaching FACS since 2002 and I have a passion for teaching my students the life skills that FACS classes offer, my favorite subject within the area is foods.  This year we will be using Google Classroom to manage our online resources for  Culinary 1, Culinary 2, Baking & Pastries and Global Foods.  

When I'm not at work, I spend a lot of time with my family.  I have to boys ages, 11 and 13, a Pug named Vinny, and a new rescue kitten named Moon.  I love to travel in the summer, spend time at our family cabin, read and practice yoga.

Our School
Mahtomedi High School has a heart for innovation, provides rigorous academic coursework, and supports students to explore extracurricular opportunities. Our teachers and staff are passionate and dedicated people who explore innovative ideas and teach our students new ways of thinking to support them in whatever career path they choose. Students engage in project-based learning to solve real-world problems using industry-standard technology in the nation’s first M.I.T. certified FabLab housed in a public school. Fine arts is a vital and robust part of the High School and our visual and performing arts classes include ceramics, digital art, choir, band, and event broadcasting. We also offer Flex Time during the school day when students may receive academic support, engage in college and career exploration, and connect over common interests. Over 90% of our student community engages in extracurricular activities that range from athletics to robotics. Students’ social and emotional learning is addressed through various avenues including a restorative practices approach for student behavior and through our Zephyr Link Crew mentoring program.
