WORK WITH ME

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.

Learn how to empower your teen, build confidence and connect with my teenage baking classes. 

Teen Empowerment

Our customized, interactive online teenage baking classes will help your teen:

I work with your teen from start to finish (time permitting) or until the baked good is in the oven.

Our registration form includes a list of beginner/intermediate recipes to choose from. After registering, you will be emailed a link for the Zoom class with instructions on joining the class and a list of ingredients, tools, and recipe directions.

**A note about allergies and food sensitivities: I bake with all-purpose flour and dairy. On the recipe choices, there will be at least one GF and one vegan option. They will be marked (V) for vegan and (GF) for gluten-free. Recipes will not contain nuts, unless indicated. If you have a food allergy/sensitivity, please list those in your registration form.

Teen Baking Class

Lynne S

"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."

She has an excellent way of listing the ingredients & required equipment needed. She is very attentive & guides her students during the class as well as making sure the students are having fun at the same time. I can highly recommend the baking classes with Sara."
