Well-Being Teacher Training
Teacher Training Program
Love traditional food? Love to teach? Me, too!
I have been teaching all sorts of people of all ages and from all walks of life how to cook nourishing, traditional food since 2006. The desire for Cooking for Well-Being classes continues to grow across the country and the world. We need more teachers, so …
I created my Cooking for Well-Being Teacher Training Program. My desire is to create a cadre of teachers throughout the country and the world who are trained in teaching the principles and techniques of cooking nourishing, traditional food according to the principles of Weston A. Price, Francis D. Pottenger and Mary Enig. These teachers will be trained deliver a well-organized and informative class with fun, ease and good humor.
I am always so moved by my Teacher Training weekends ... by the caliber of the students who come to work with me...and I am deeply touched by their spirits. The connections we make in these four days of training are strong ones ... and lately they are spanning the globe..students are coming from as far away as Hong Kong, Mexico and Canada to be with me and take the Cooking for Well-Being Teacher Training that I offer. I am so blessed to do what I love...and deeply appreciative of all of it.
There are three levels to the training:
Level I Traditional Foods Cook

Level III Master Traditional Foods Instructor
Level I is for beginners or those who would really like to have a strong foundation in traditional cooking methods. Level I will provide the foundation of knowledge in both technique and background - the how and the why of cooking traditional foods. It is a four day intensive program, and is offered in Colorado and around the country. For current Level I training dates, see the calendar. Interested? Read this Level I letter to prospective students. Please note that a student must pass Level I training to register for Level II training.

Level I/II is for those who are familiar with traditional foods cooking and who have been implementing those techniques for a while, I offer a Level I/II Intensive weekend. These 5 day programs are designed to review and reinforce the hows and whys of traditional foods cooking and provide students with the tools to teach classes. Students must pre-qualify for the Level I/II Intensive Program. For a current schedule of Level I/II training, see the calendar. Read this Level I/II letter to prospective students.
Level III is by invitation of the instructor. It is meant to train Traditional Foods Teachers to become a Master Teacher, one who delivers Level II training, teaching Cooks to Teach.
