Still interested?"

So I showed her the visble scars from a knife fight with a disgruntled employee on work-release, told her about being stabbed in the back by a coked-out waitress in the middle of dinner rush; about watching my Banquet Chef die from an amphetamine-induced heart attack ( he had a 100 hit-per-day habit) in front of my eyes....

She said "I guess we won't be showing you much new here then, will we?"

Prolly Not.

There is a difference between fusion and confusion.

Man, I am jealous, this is cool. I think you will be surprised on how well the "troubled" kids will take to this. Are you just teaching the cooking and creating side or do you get to go into the "real" side of the kitchen (pricing, menu development etc)? And when are you going to break it to them that it is not like Hell's Kitchen and the other shows? And finally, can I apply to be your TA? Man, so many ideas my head hurts. If I can help in any way, let me know!

I'll be teaching an Intro class to 9th graders...sort of an "Intro to the World of Food" class, with a general overview of the Hospitality Industry, and Food of the World, plus general nutrition and home cooking basics. Once the kids pick Culinary Arts as a career track, the 10, 11 and 12 graders get whatever I can teach 'em...front and back of the house, storeroom ops, and general cooking skills, (I'll likely structure it like a traditional apprenticeship skills program). They have a small 10 seat retail cafe' outlet that has not been utilized because of some "issues" with the health dept...so I'll need to resolve that immediatly so we can put the Seniors on the track to design ,organize and operate the cafe' just like a "real" one....in charge of putting on a meal on a regular basis.

..and you are right...my head is spinning with the potential for good with this.

I will accept any and all suggestions and...

...I will keep you posted........

It's such a different experience being is a organized Culinary school... It's such a great opportunity for you Congratulations. I never would have never imagined that they would have a culinary class in a Hard-Knocks school... Something about bad attitudes and knives not really getting along with each other.

I just hope you don't have to take a bat to school on your bike...

I have the feeling that OTB is going to be the "cool" teacher, the Mr Carter of his area. Showing up to school on different bikes, teaching kids "real world" things, and we all know that he has the talant for explaining things. The inmates use knifes in prison kitchens (granted they are chained to the table) but yea, I think I might concentrate on baking.

Me either- unless it was boxing or some other martial art. Then they could let out all their pent up violence, and I could knock them down a few pegs...

I had a very gifted teacher when I was in high school he was not popular with the principal. He taught drafting and had been an engineer who retired and became a teacher he let us listen to music in class, smoke cigarettes, and introduced me to frank zappa. Most importantly he taught me how to draft by hand and on a computer, and while I have never done this for a living he taught me the importance of getting your work done right first and keeping your priorties straight. Long live Mr. Nix ...
