I love my class!!!

I have the BEST group of students a teacher could ask for.  They are all enthusiastic, adventurous eaters that seem to really enjoy the whole cooking thing.

We are in our third week of bread making... and so far... no one is tiring too badly from bread... It's just so important to fully learn about a food like bread, rather than skim over it lightly... I want them to REALLY know how to get fresh bread on the table... one day... they may want to make it for their families.

I get such a kick out of seeing the kids light up when they tell me they cooked for their family the night before.  One student told me his Grandpa didn't want to wait for the bread to be separated into individual loaves and just baked the ENTIRE batch of dough all at once...My mind immediately went to that "I Love Lucy" episode when she tried to make home baked bread... too funny.

I feel like the registration people hand picked my class for me... what a blessing... they are all beautiful, inside and out... and the four men I have in class are holding their own very well.

I didn't know how much I would love teaching... I can't imagine NOT teaching now...

Just thought I'd share...

My students are so awesome... I love each and every one of them!!!
