Amy taught herself to bake using a free Fleischmann Yeast booklet back in 1972. She has been a teacher for almost as long, in settings from traditional school classrooms to wilderness, with students from preschoolers through seniors, and covering topics from life science to sea kayaking. Combining her passions for teaching and baking, with a little science and history thrown in for good measure, Amy leads bread baking courses for new to intermediate bakers.
