Meet another member of our faculty Ms. Jan Theresa Marie Pineda who teaches classes in Business and Baking and Pastries. Those who know her simply call her Ms. Jan or Ms. Pineda. Hailing from the Philippines, Ms. Pineda moved to Louisiana in 2008 to be a Family and Consumer Science teacher. She graduated with a degree in Education at the oldest university in the Philippines, The University of Santo Tomas.
Ms. Pineda has an adorable son who is in 3rd grade at Terrytown Elementary School in Gretna. She writes, “Being able to teach and share my own knowledge and experiences to kids will always be my passion. I usually spend my free time cooking/baking, fishing, dancing and singing with friends.”
While conventional wisdom is to follow your heart, in this situation the better advice may be to follow your nose, because it’s certainly to lead to a sweet surprise!
