This is the time of the year where many students start to feel their motivation dwindle, and their exhaustion levels rise. Some may even feel a lack of creativity or inspiration.
I have worked in school nutrition for the past 14 years. I believe it is the perfect mix of leadership, nutrition science, food service management and hospitality. It is a wonderful career choice because it allows you to grow in many academic and management areas while really making a difference.
Feeding children and helping them to grow up healthy and ready to learn is an extremely rewarding experience. My parents are both retired teachers and they instilled in me this belief: to teach effectively you must teach the “what, how and why.” In my years as a training specialist and dietetic preceptor, I’ve leaned on this skill and find that it is most effective in teaching others so that they can succeed.
