Here I am writing a blog. I never thought in a million years that I would be doing this. I am a Family and Consumer Science Teacher (aka Home Economics teacher). Teens love technology and what better way to get them more involved in food than food blogs. I started this with no blogging knowledge. I did read Blogging for Dummies and just jumped right in. So this is definitely a work in progress.
I knew that I wanted to be a teacher from the beginning of time! I have loved and still love teaching. I look forward to my job because it is so rewarding in many ways. I am not in it for the pay, but I have truly been very happy in my career choice.
I graduated from Georgia College and State University with a Masters in Home Economics Education. I later added Middle School Education from Georgia State University. I taught eighth grade science for eight years. My love though is Family and Consumer Science. For many years I was a one woman show and taught child development, clothing and textiles, interior design, foods, and teaching as a profession. Now that I teach part-time I only teach Nutrition and Wellness.
My love for cooking started at a very young age. My mother turned me loose in the kitchen probably around eight years old. Since flour, sugar and eggs were inexpensive I did a lot of baking. I have never had any culinary training although I would love to do that sort of thing. I am just a self taught cook.
I believe that exercise and a good diet go hand in hand. I spend a lot of time at the gym. I also play tennis, but not very well.
Other interests are reading, sewing, entertaining friends, biking, and walking. Since blogging some of those interests have fallen by the wayside for lack of time.
