Mr. Mathews from Cleveland OH is requesting Sports & Exercise Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students life skills that will benefit them and a school wide goal at the end of the school year.
These students are compassionate, hard working and inquisitive. They are willing to learn but have been presented a bad hand in life . Some of them have become the parents by default because of a lack of parenting for themselves. So they have to do for themselves and in most cases for brothers and sisters. I have witnessed house fires and sometimes injuries because of there willing spirit to cook for the family. These students are low income and in a poverty increased area with high crime and they still manage to work hard in school and get there despite very challenging circumstances.
I plan to teach my students personal safety as well as food safety. As a Chef I plan to start simple by giving them techniques to ensure safety and ultimately provide them with a life skills, not only to help the family but also give them a job in life and or a option in a career path. I will teach them the proper way to handle hot cooking and preparation and simple cold preparation. I will also teach healthy and nutritious ways of preparing meals and snacks for themselves as well as how to budget and shop for the family. They will also learn sanitation and proper cleaning of materials, meats and produce. By the end of the year we plan to cook for the entire school on the last day of school.
