Happy to be here

Hi I am new to this site and would like to introduce myself. I am a serious home cook and a teacher. I teach 7th and 8th graders basic nutrition and food preparation. I have been teaching for 26 years and I am contemplating my next career. I am interested in volunteering with an organization that provides meals for the homebound and starting a community garden. I also want to learn how to bake really good bread. If anyone here can offer insight into any of my new "careers" I would really appreciate it. I am excited about being a part of this community.

Welcome! You should probably get a special award for teaching at that age! :p

 

There are plenty of great bread discussions in the forums so the search feature is your friend. Also posting in the bread and baking forum (non-pro) is a great option as you learn from other bread lovers and more often than not the chefs will help answer a question. Let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Do you mean still teaching at my age or teaching kids that age??? Lol for the record I'm only in my early 50's!I still have a lot to learn and am hoping your site will help me. I have seen and read some impressive things already. Never too old to learn something new. This is going to be an exciting new year!

Chefsmom, hello from another middle school teacher! I retired some years ago, but I loved teaching that age better than any other, and I taught all ages in my 30 years on the job. One minute they're snarling some rap lyrics, the next minute they're snuggling their stuffed animals. Gotta love it!
