2010 is almost over.
The holiday has given me sometime to reflect on what I do and where the program is. As an educator I sometimes gauge my effectiveness or success on the accomplishments of my students. To this end, I was successful in 2010.
Derek graduated with his Bachelor degree from the University of Houston. He is working as the assistant pastry chef at a resort in Vale. Derek is very talented, focused and will be a factor to be contended with.
Dedee also graduated with her Bachelor degree. She attended Texas Tech University. I really enjoyed having Dedee in class.
Pat attended on the hands on Plate Cooks events sponsored by Plate Magazine. His group received the coveted "best plate" award for their recipe by the California Raisin Board.
There have been many more successes through the year but these are the ones that stand out to me at the moment. Well done guys!
I can't wait for 2011.
