Jamie says: “I’m a mom of five kids, aged 8-15, and I love the sense of organized chaos that a big family brings. I love growing our own food, baking bread, crocheting and reading. My favorite season is summer, but fall is a close second! I love to teach because I love the look in kids’ eyes when they realize they have learned or mastered something new! I try to inspire students to find something they love about a subject area and to get creative and passionate about it. “
