Question of the Week November 3:
Think about your teaching this past week and then answer the following question: "What was the event that most took me by surprise - an event where I saw or did something that shook me up, caught me off guard, gave me a jolt, or made me unexpectedly happy?"
Where do I begin with this? We are catering all the time to make money for the culinary program this semester since I will not be here next semester and so far we have made $2,600.00 profit! Killing it as we say in the business. 11/5 we had 40 Fulton County principals come to our school for a breakfast at 8 am. I was at school at 6:15 and told the 32 students that signed up to be here at 6:45 ready to go. I walk down the hallway to the room and there they are! all ready and some still asleep which was ok because they were there early. We had prepped everything and now was our moment to shine. Smoked salmon needed to be plated, cinnamon rolls to be iced, quiche to be baked and orange juice and coffee to be made. My 189 students this year always surprise me but this exceeded my expectations! The event was flawless and the superintendent was amazed. My students made me happy and gave me that last jolt I needed to make over 275 pies that we are selling for Thanksgiving!
