Taught three years at a SE Portland high school and now teaching on the coast. I teach foods and nutrition, family development, child psychology, culinary arts, middle school FACS, and hospitality and tourism. I also worked for the Disney company for four years. I'm an adviser for culinary arts, customer service, and cake decorating for Skills USA and even had students attend and win at nationals two years in a row!
Student-centered, cooperative learning, and performance-based assessments are my style of choice. :)
Teacher of the Year 2013 for my school
BS in Nutrition and Food Management, a BS in Education, and an Ed. M in Education and ESOL endorsement. Teaching for five years at a 7-12 High School.
I used to work for the Disney Company for four years before working as a teacher. I have a great fondness for Disney to this day and LOVE to plan vacations for my family and friends.
