RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I have been working with families for over 18 years, and I have taught as a licensed parent and family educator in the state of Minnesota. I currently work in St. Paul Public Schools (District 625) working with families whose children were aged birth to 5 years old. One of my favorite ages to work with has to be those adorable 3-year-olds who tell it like it is-they crack me up! My teaching is built upon a philosophy of critical reflection, strength-based learning strategies, meeting families where they are at in their everyday living, and using a holistic approach to understand parenting challenges in the real world. My doctorate is in Education: Curriculum and Instruction-Family, Youth, and Community from the University of Minnesota. I had a strong focus on parent and family education, and my research was focused on teens and youth. I have explored children and teen's peer group formation, and my Ph.D. dissertation examined parent-teen conflict and argument from the teen perspective. My dissertation was published in book form under the title, "What Are Teens Thinking? Parent-Teen Conflict and Argument From the Teen Perspective." In addition to teaching parents, I dedicated many years to teaching up and coming parent educators, family life educators, and early childhood educators as an adjunct faculty at both the University of Minnesota and Concordia University
