Mrs. Anne Kinley
I am very excited to have the privilege of educating your child this year. I have been teaching 27 plus years. I have taught first grade, second grade, fourth grade and Middle School Family and Consumer Science (FCS). I was born and raised right here in the Treasure Valley. I went to school in Caldwell and graduated from Caldwell High School. I spent my first year of college at Washington State University on a full ride swimming scholarship and finished my degree at the University of Idaho in 1996 (Go Vandals!). My family and I reside in Nampa. I am married with one daughter Morganne, a graduate of Middleton High School and University of Idaho and is currently a new 7th and 8th grade English teacher here in Middleton! I am a "furmom" to two wonderful doggies- one, a fun-loving Cairn Terrier (Toto) named Bear, and two, a beautiful black lab named Deke. In my free time I enjoy hiking, downhill skiing at Brundage Mountain, and spending time at my family cabin in McCall. I also enjoy traveling with my family, paddle boarding, rafting and reading novels.
Book: Harry Potter series and mysteries
Music: All genres (except rap)
Things: Camping, reading, swimming, snorkeling, shopping, reading, playing with my dog, spending time with family, and having down time ;-)
Place to Go: Outdoors, McCall, various ski resorts, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Belize and Hawaii
This is a trimester-long class- it consists mainly of cooking with relationships and family relations content taught intertwined. It is NOT a pass/fail class. We will have approximately 4 cooking labs. All cooking labs will have a demonstration before for comprehension and to maximize student success for their own cooking labs.
Our cooking focus is on the basics, using proper measuring techniques, and proper direction following of recipes. We focus on meal preparation, and working together to create fun, appetizing dishes.
Cooking labs are hands-on experiences that you will complete with your group members. This requires teamwork, inclusion, and a positive attitude.
Thinking activities that are cooking related are done often (except lab days). These are graded.
d. We heavily focus on kitchen cleanliness and food safety practices.
