My Students

My class is a Hospitality and Tourism class. We cook. We replaced the Home Economics class and are a more career oriented cooking class to help students discover and explore different career paths.

My students are generally Title I students.

That means they are at a lower economic status. Several of them are at high risk for dropping out. My class is a career oriented class, which allows them to explore different career paths. We cook in my class, which helps the students to be involved and create meals that they could apply to a future career, or even their basic skills at home. My class, which emphasizes cooking, also encourages vocabulary development and math skills as well. We try to coordinate our cooking with the Geography classes to help students explore different cultures. For examples, when students are learning about Africa in Geography, I'm planning to have them cook African food in my course.

My Project

My students only have the bare cooking supplies right now. They haven't had a cooking course at my school for several years, so we started with nothing and are building our supplies through help from the school and donors. We had our pots and pans and hand mixers donated. The school purchased aprons, cooking utensils, and mixing bowls. I would like my students to use the mixers to help them create more intricate meals. I would also like them to be able to compare microwave cooked meals with stove cooked meals. We also cook 99% of our materials from scratch. For example, the cinnamon rolls in the picture weren't from a can. They made the dough, rolled them, let them rise and made the icing while they baked.

These donations will help my students to experience using equipment they may not have at home.

Some of my students can't afford a belt, so being able to use a microwave or a stand mixer would help them learn how to use other materials and apply these skills to a job.
