In the 1950s, the author was a college student working toward a degree in education, looking forward to beginning a career in teaching. To allay expenses in completing her degree, she accepted a position as a teacher in a remote area where it was difficult to place teachers with a degree. Here she learned the true meaning of dedication and the need for good teachers. She completed her education and spent thirty-six years in the classroom. Upon retiring, she published two cookbooks and continued her love for cooking, writing, spending time with family and friends, and planning her next project. Her love for teaching and her memories of the many children whose lives she touched resulted in this book where she could share stories that were such a big part of her adult life.
