I have spent over 15 years working with parents and tweens/teens, and love learning from them as well as sharing my experience and knowledge. For the last 5 years I have been teaching baking for teens, 10-15 year-olds, both in-person and online, and absolutely love it. It's a great joy for me to spend time baking with tweens/teens. They keep me on my toes, and make me laugh.
I also know how hard it can be to parent teenagers. I have spent many years leading parenting education workshops to help parents during their child's adolescent years. I believe that feeling supported as a parent can be key to helping you connect with one another and form a community. Which can be incredibly invaluable.
Using my varied skills, I have created a unique way to work with parents and tweens/teens. I offer customized private baking for teens online classes to both tweens/teens and their families. My goal is to empower your tween/teen, while supporting them through baking. I design baking classes to help tweens/teens gain confidence and independence, while being in a fun environment.
I also offer classes for families—parents/guardians/grandparents and their tween/teen. Families can benefit from working with me as it provides a way for you to connect with your tween/teen in a natural way, all while spending time creating in the kitchen.
When my daughter was young, she was a Brownie. I learned a little about the Girl Scout's organization and its mission. During the past few years, especially, during the pandemic, I realized how essential Girl Scout troops have been for their members. I have therefore chosen to support the Girl Scouts and offer customizable baking sessions to troops. Reach out to me to discuss how I can work with your troop and help build confidence in your girls.
Finally, using my experience as a parenting educator, I offer monthly parenting discussion groups to help educate and support parents. These sessions are interactive and are a great way to connect with other parents so you don't feel alone in your parenting efforts.

BAKING FOR TEENS & THEIR FAMILIES
"I highly recommend Sara for teaching both kids & adults! During the sessions, Sara was patient, ensuring everyone was on the same step. She was great at telling us what was going to happen & when. With the kids she was considerate & asked each about how much cooking experience they had, helping them every step of the way. Sara was personable & comfortable interacting with both the parents & kids."
"Sara’s passion for baking is evident, not only in her delicious delicacies, but also in her joy in sharing her craft in a spirit of camaraderie with those lucky enough to sample her delectable confections."
"I was thrilled to have the opportunity to bake with Sara and to hear her passion for how baking can help to build strong relationships with teens and tweens. As a school administrator, I know how significantly the Social and Emotional wellbeing of teens and tweens have suffered over the past few years since COVID. Any opportunity for a teen to try a new skill, and in the process build a strong connection with a caring adult, is something that should be welcomed and celebrated."
