This blog is the second iteration of one I started on Posterous before they got scooped up. I talk about teaching and ed reform and life and other random stuff. These are my thoughts.
This year, I’ll finally be teaching Culinary Arts. It’s been a wait. I believe in vocational education and am saddened by the way education has marginalized the concept. As we drive home more testing and accountability talk, we (educators) forget that a good teacher can teach anything to anybody as long as students are engaged. It’s this engagement that vocational education inherently possesses and we would do well to work it.
So the focus will be teaching in general and I plan to dedicate a page to my culinary arts undertakings.
Should be a blast.
