My Students

Think of a young adult who before the age of 20 may have dealt with anxiety, loss of a parent, foster care, adoption, homelessness, or the need to feel a part of humanity. Our students are a combination of this and more. Yet this is not how they are identified.

Our school teens are persistent, driven, and deserve to know they have a chance in life.

Our school family is our second home. Our students are in a low socio-economic area that lacks the personal life skills programs.

My Project

This project will provide our students with the opportunity to develop and practice cooking skills and nutritional knowledge needed to sustain a healthy lifestyle. The lessons include food preparation, communication and dining etiquette.

Students will research recipes for specific health topics such as: sugar free cooking for diabetics, baked vs fried foods, diet specific meal prep etc.

Cross curricular connections are made with: Math- measuring, recording cook time, adjusting ingredients to accommodate serving needed; ELA- journal writing about their experience, research, group discussions, cultural foods and reading recipes; Science- temperature, measuring, nutritional health; Social Studies- historical research of culinary arts.
