How My Mom Used Cookie-Barter to Pack Her Home Economics Classes to Over-flowing

      Comments Off on How My Mom Used Cookie-Barter to Pack Her Home Economics Classes to Over-flowing

 

Hi,
I learned this Barter-
to-Keep-Your-Job-
Technique from
the inside – so
to speak.
My job – as the oldest
of 3 Brothers –
was to make
Dessert for each
meal at Home.
If something I
cooked or baked
looked GREAT.
Mom would
Ask my Permission
to Photograph it and
add it to her
Slide Show.
She Made Trips
to all the Jr High Schools
that Fed Kids into
the Sr High School
where she worked.
Took Several 1000
Sugar, Raisin, Walnut,
Oatmeal, Choco Chip
 cookies (Her kids made Extra)
to Feed 500 High
School kids at a time.
While she Showed
them Slides and talked
about what they would
Learn to Cook If they
 signed up for Home Ec
Cooking Class in Sr High.
Result?
Job Security.
While all other
Home Economics
Programs in
Maryland were Failing.
My Mom – as Home
Ec Dept Chairman –
Filled every Class
of hers and The
Other Home Economics
Teachers Classrooms
to Over-Flowing.
More PROOF You
Can’t Learn to Be
An Entrepreneur in
Public School…
NOT ONE Teacher
asked, “Why are all
Your Classrooms
Bulging with kids
and ours are Empty?
Great Fun to meet Kids and
their parents in the Grocery
Store and hear parents
Raving about how good
their son or daughter is
in the kitchen.
Thanks,
Glenn
