Culinary Instructor? it is very rewarding

When I first received the telephone call to teach culinary arts to over 100 teenagers I never thought that I could get used to it.

Wishing you all the best.

We had an exciting weekend this past weekend with the ProStart championship. One of our local teams (Olathe North High School) on the Kansas side of the State line took second place in the Culinary side. So two years ago they had taken 2nd, last year 1st and last night finished 2nd. We are very proud of them !
