Mrs. Aguirre’s Classroom Edit display name

  • Mira Mesa High School
  • San Diego, CA
  • More than half of students from low‑income households

I teach Culinary Arts and Food Nutrition to 134 California high school students. Students learn about foods and cooking techniques from around the world, the fundamentals of nutrition, food service career opportunities, team work and leadership skills. Students that earn an A or B, receive college credit. This project will be a part of a unit on healthy dining with an emphasis on sustainable farming and an awareness of how food makes it from the farm to the table. Cooking labs preparing various types of protein using recipes from around the world will be enhanced by a class library with books on preparing, choosing and purchasing meat. In my classroom the minority is the majority. In a class of 35 students you will see an average of 5 White/Caucasian students. The remaining are Asian, Philippine, African American and Hispanic. 20% of my students are Special Education, & over 40% are on the free/reduced lunch program.
