Patty Quinn, Preschool Director, Flagstaff Academy

Jodie Popma is passionate about teaching children good nutrition and mindfulness.This past year Jodie has taught the preschool classes about the importance of choosing healthy drinks, good dental hygiene, grains and seed, and exposed them to tasting farm fresh vegetables such as tomatoes, turnip, carrots, and spinach.  The students benefited from her hands-on lessons so much, that I have hired Jodie as our part-time nutrition teacher for the 16-17 school year.
