Teacher Tuesday

Teacher Tuesday: July 24, 2018

“She connects with kids like no other and teaches them how to live,” said a student about this week’s #TeacherTuesday, Mary McDonald, a Family and Consumer Sciences teacher at Central Bucks High School West. She believes that “food is medicine” and places a heavy emphasis on the importance of eating whole foods as she leads her students in a daily lab, reinforcing why that’s the case and showing them how “medicine” can taste very good.

This inspiring teacher believes that you can’t be good at anything until you practice, and with that in mind, she offers her students the opportunity to cook daily. The result is a fun environment where students can enjoy the process of preparing wholesome foods, without the fear of making mistakes, and in the company of friends of all abilities.

This year, Mary implemented a “Give Back Garden” that will produce vegetables and herbs to support the cooking classes as well as the Cooking for the Homeless club after school.
Tell us what other teachers add some spice to life and we’ll feature them in an upcoming #TeacherTuesday.
