I have been a teacher from PK through high school to transitions for over 20 years. In the past 13 years I have worked exclusively in Special Education. I created a life skills cooking class 6 years ago at the local high school geared to the needs and abilities of my students. In addition I provide cooking workshops at local community centers. From this curriculum has come my first book, "Special Day Cooking" a life skills cookbook.
My cooking classes are "all hands on", Everyone participates from gathering the ingredients to enjoying their creation to clean up, creating a very social interactive fun cooking class. My classes are always full.

I am originally from Massachusetts where I worked in the computer industry as a program manager. When I re met my now husband at our high school class reunion I moved to California where he was living. We have a fabulous daughter, Gina, and a snugly kitty named Kiwi.
