"I like demonstrating and teaching my students how core academics, like math and science, are used in the everyday world around them. I also like watching students gain the skills and self confidence through Culinary Arts and FCCLA participation that allow them to be successful in the work place. It is exciting to watch students develop an interest in one of the areas in the kitchen and then work on individual projects that allow them to independently learn and better understand."
