In addition to teaching and serving as the FCCLA adviser, I currently serve as CTAE Department Head and as a member of Tift County High School Local School Governance Team.
Food for Life and Food Science classes hosted 4th grade students from one of our elementary schools. During the 2 hour visits, my high school students were paired with 2-3 elementary students to teach them about sanitation and measuring techniques required to make a brownie in a mug using our microwaves.
Cross curricular projects: This year my Food, Nutrition and Wellness course partnered with our horticulture class to harvest a variety of vegetables. These groups researched the nutritional benefits of the vegetables and preparation methods. After harvesting the vegetables, nutrition students worked with agriculture students to cook the food items for everyone to taste.
