My Students

My students are eager learners. When they evaluate their own learning, they want lessons and instructions in a variety of ways. The students will also say they love lots of examples especially when they are learning new skills. They have a desire to learn and to do it well.

My students come from a very diverse cultural and language backgrounds and have diverse learning needs and styles.

We have found hands-on activities reach most of the students. I strive to have a variety of activities to reach all students.

My Project

Students love hands-on learning. Their enthusiasm decreases once they see the equipment. Most of the items in each station are very old and following apart. No amount of cleaning or repair will bring them back to life. Many of the items are over 20 years old.

Students need cooking equipment to practice making highly nutritious and budget-friendly recipes.

I want to bring back that enthusiasm with updated equipment.

Many of my students come from low to moderate-income families. The foods we talk about and make always keep a strict budget in mind along with being nutritious. The students are fully invested with a lab, they love to go home and cook for their families and share what they have learned. These hands-on life skills lessons will last a lifetime.
