Although, I loved working with the little ones, I decided to follow my passions and make a big change. I got certified to teach Family and Consumer Sciences and it has been the best decision I have ever made! In 2010, I started teaching for the Liberty Public School District. For two years, I taught Family and Consumer Sciences at the Liberty Academy. I implemented the ProStart curriculum and took their first ever competitive cooking team to the state competition in Union, MO.
I have taught the following courses: Housing & Interior Design, Pregnancy & Parenting, Introduction to Culinary, Culinary I, Culinary II, Textiles & Construction, and Healthy Living.
