    :) Well friends after a few days of negotiations, I signed on today as a Chef Instructor at The Conn Center for Culinary Arts. I will start April 19th when the new Module begins, and my first class will be teaching Classical French Cuisine and it's history. I am very excited and thank you all for your beautiful words of encouragement.

    I have not been this excited in many years

    Peace
    CC

    There's nothing like teaching. And that first day of class: overlooking a room full of wide-eye cabbage heads with freshly washed faces into which you instill your own knowledge and experience and transform them into cognizant human beings. You, YOU have control.

    I can't wait to start.

    Hey, I was thinking about keeping a journal and posting about my experience as a teacher.We have had a couple great journals from students, how about from an instructors perspective? Suzanne, Can you help me with my spelling? :eek:

    I was entertaining the notion of returning to school, but kokopuffs changed all that with the cabbage head comment :eek:

    Congratulations, CC! I look forward hearing more about your job and experiences at the school.

    Very cool :cool: Brad, very cool! I am elated for you, I know how much you wanted to do this. I really couldn't be happier for you. You really are the embodiment of knowledge in your field and the love you have for it will no doubt be transferred to your students. Don't worry about the spelling, you're not teaching English! :D
    Best wishes and great fortune L'Chayim :beer:

    Congratulations, Brad! I love the journal idea; as you said, it's a whole new perspective (both for students and prospective teachers) and I don't know that it's been done before on any food website. It'd be a great addition to the front page, but start anytime you want in the forums.

    Congratulations. Cape Chef! After reading your posts here for the last few years I can't think of or have met someone more qualified than you to give to your students something so often missing from but in great need of in young culinary students. A clue. Thanks in advance and again thank you from your students' future potential employers.

    I so envy you, not only being able to cook but being able to create and share the culinary arts with eager minds! Keep us posted and don't be afraid to share a recipe (or three).
