School, Tuesdays, Spring 2006
I am a Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher with nine years of experience, 7
of which are in the high school setting.
I am a graduate of Heritage High School here in Rockdale
County and attended Clayton State
College before transferring to the University
of Georgia where I
finished up my Bachelor’s degree.
I have contemplated for years if I want to continue my education. Now, at the spry, young age of 30, I
have decided that I want to be a chef when I grow up. Of course, I will only be 52 when I
retire from teaching, so I feel as if maybe my plan might just work
out… one day… when my four children are grown… and I am drawing
a paycheck from my retirement!
