Floral design classes are coming to STAES this coming nine weeks. Taught by Mrs. Jaime Rocha. Mrs. Rocha attended the Benz School of Floral Design at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. Afterwards, she began working in local floral shops, specializing in designs which include large corporate parties, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and home designs. In 2006, she continued her career, focusing on design in local churches and managing the Liturgical seasons for multiple denominations. She enjoys designing for weddings, special events and special creations for family and friends. Her goal is to equip people with knowledge of flowers and design so they can achieve their personal style with success.
