Open Mic #2.....

I wanted to use this time to THANKS to everyone. I have really enjoyed being apart of this program and have learned so much, not just from the wonderful instructors but from each of you as professionals and classmates. Industry Certifcation site vist is now over and I feel that I have a little relief ,although I have a couple more projects to wrap up. I wish each of you the best of luck and can't wait to see everyone all together again next weekend.

I think we should plan to do something to know I love to plan out if anyone is interested or have any ideas please feel free to email me:

Hi, Keio - I trust the site visit was a success . . . you are so teaching the right career for your personality! But then any career would benefit from your presence . . . make sure you stay in touch because I am very curious as to all the great things your students will accomplish.

By the way, with all the talk of competitions and such, one of my fondest memories of going to Nationals was seeing the Culinary Arts display - is there a Keio Kooker headed for Nationals soon?
