Tammy Prichard has been involved with Arcadia for the past 8 years, first as a parent, then a board member, and now as a writing teacher. She teaches a mix of essay writing and creative writing classes. She also teaches one day a week at a homeschool consortium in Eden Prairie. Before her involvement with Arcadia, she was a homeschooling mom here in Northfield to various combinations of her seven children. As empty nesters, Tammy and her husband Jim are trying to figure out how to cook for two, whose turn it is to do the dishes, and why they keep talking about the cat.
