Self Assessment and Reflection
GOAL: Assess previous understanding, skills, and applications related to gardening, teaching, nutrition, and sustainable living.
During the application process, you were asked to consider your current understanding and what else you think would be beneficial to learn as you may begin this term.

Once you have completed these feel free to move on to the:
