I teach Family & Consumer Sciences in two different rural school systems. I am also a community communicator for USDA with regard to the Choose My Plate Food Guide, which replaces the Food Pyramid. Through cooperation with other departments within the schools, I impart knowledge and information concerning the impending food crisis that our world will be facing by 2050. Every day, I provide information, skills, and services to more than 100 students through the CTE exploratory course of Home & Career Skills.
