One of my favorite teachers of all time. Learned many basic life skills and how to make the best tuna sandwich with redskin peanuts! My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to her entire family

In 1971, When I was in seventh grade, as an experiment, I was among a bunch of boys who got to take Home
Economic classes with Mrs. Jensen. I learned how to bake a muffin, use a sewing machine and to properly wash dishes. Three of the most useful skills I learned in all of my education. She was kind and welcoming. I will remember her always.
