Everyday, Wilton Method Instructors (WMIs) everywhere are teaching Wilton Cake Decorating classes. They are on the front lines with our consumers, sharing their passion for Wilton techniques and products, and loving every minute of it. In the nearly 35 year history of our program, WMIs have taught 4 million students how to decorate, touching lives and making memories every step of the way.
Wilton is proud to honor the accomplishments of our WMIs through special recognition programs. In the US and Canada, this includes a special award every year for the WMI who teaches the most students at a single retail store. I’m pleased to introduce you to Stephanie De La Cerda from Brownsville, TX, the 2007 AND 2008 WMI of the Year — our first ever back-to-back winner!
Since beginning her career as a Wilton Method Instructor in 2002, Stephanie has taught over 4,200 students, an amazing achievement for such a short time. Stephanie teaches in both English and Spanish, offers 10-12 courses a month, and partners with her store to make sure customers know about Wilton classes. She considers herself lucky to have a job doing what she loves so much.
Stephanie was in town recently enjoying one of her Instructor of the Year prizes, a trip to The Wilton School. A group of us had the pleasure of taking her out to dinner to celebrate her hard work and dedication to the Wilton program. Congratulations Stephanie!
