Today I am a full time culinary arts teacher and the owner and operator of a food truck. Each time I stand in front of new groups of students and each time I have to learn new names and get to know new faces I am reminded of the time I spent traveling as a representative to my jurisdictions. Each class that I teach I am reminded of my rainbow speech skills. I try really hard to give my students the opportunity to stand before their peers and present because I know how important it is be able to speak in front of a room full of people. As a business owner I use the skills I learned in my local assembly through fundraising and budgeting. I spent many years on my assemblies budget committee and then as treasurer of my assembly. These skills are invaluable to me as a business owner. I work with students and customers on a regular basis and Rainbow has given me the skills I need to be successful at both.
