My name is Tara Crider. I'm originally from Houston, TX. I graduated from Sam Houston State University in May '11 with a Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences with a Teaching Certification.
I did my first year teaching in Livingston and I spent the last 3 years in Sheldon ISD on the outskirts of Houston. My husband's work as a Culinary Arts teacher brought us to Austin this past summer.
I have been involved in FCCLA for 8 years. I have served as a judge, room chair, advisor and volunteer. I have had national competitors twice, with one bringing home a gold medal and the other a silver medal.
Food Science is a new endeavor for me that I am looking forward to.
