After graduating from The University of Missouri with a degree in Middle and Elementary education and a graduates degree in Administration, I went on to teach Family and Consumer Sciences (a.k.a. home economics) in the public school system for 6 years. When we decided to grow our family I chose to enter into motherhood full time. Full-time motherhood then turned into the desire to teach my own here at home which has proven to be an incredibly rich way to teach! While spending time with my 4 little ones is beyond rewarding, I also enjoy teaching the joy and value of cooking/reading to as many as are willing. With the “read.cook.grow.” program I can enjoy the best of both worlds!
