“My family moved outside of Ann Arbor to a small farm not so long ago. We have become homesteaders raising a flock of chickens and small herd of dairy goats. We grow, can, and store many vegetables for the winter. We also take many of our farm items to the Dixboro Farmers’ Market where my husband Jason is the market manger. We love working together in the dirt or making delicious food that came from our backyard. Jason and I founded the Michigan Folk School four years ago and partnered with WCC to offer classes on sustainable living, cheese making, soap making, and many other courses that promote the renewal traditional folk arts needed for both rural and urban homesteading.”
Mrs. Gold‘s Educational Philosophy:
“Knowing that there are always creative ways to improve what lies before me continue to inspire changes in my teaching, whether it be, student performance, curriculum or relationships. The first door to effective teaching opens by creating relationships with students, parents, and colleagues. It’s through honest enjoyment of being together that allows opportunities for learning to be the most meaningful. It is important to create meaningful and memorable experiences that integrate the whole child, the head, heart and hands, into every lesson.”
