Welcome to the world of TR Culinary Arts!!! We make magic happen in the kitchen with love every day!! I have been teaching Family & Consumer Sciences for 25 years. I have been at Roosevelt HS for 20 years and am looking forward to possible retirement in 2024!!! Family & Consumer Science classes are those classes that we utilize in our everyday living. I have taught students about Housing, Financial Management, Nutrition, and many other topics. One of the main reasons I love the topics I teach is because they are relevant for a student's entire life. We will always be required to eat food, find shelter, or make financial transactions. Currently I teach Culinary Arts, Advanced Culinary Arts, & Practicum in Culinary Arts. I love watching a students faces as they suddenly create magic in the kitchen! I tell them we will begin with flour and water to create pancakes or biscuits or dumplings or cookies the magic is in knowing the formula (Recipe) and in PRACTICE! Mistakes are expected in the kitchen. Sometimes accidents become the new trendy cuisine. TR could produce the next Masterchef Television Celebrity! Say tuned...
