Greetings and welcome to the 2017 - 2018 School Year,
There are many areas in this website that I know you will find interesting and quite useful. My goal is to make this website not just a tool for me, as the teacher, but also a learning tool and resource for the students and a point of reference for parents and or guardians as well as colleagues.
On this site you will find information and assignments for your Culinary Arts class so check back often.
As we begin this school year, full of hope and dreams, let's keep in mind that we are a part of something greater than ourselves and approach our learning in the spirit of cooperation and kindness towards one another. At South Dade Senior High School, let us begin this year with the mantra of "Keeping it Positive" using 7 simple rules that will help each of us achieve our best always and the best life has to offer.
Rule #1 Wait to Worry - Take a step back, analyze and resolve.
Rule #2 Keep an Attitude of Gratitude - Be polite, say thank you, keep your promise, show consideration, caring and sharing, and keep the golden rule of doing unto others as you would like others to do unto you.
Rule #3 Your Health is Your Wealth - A daily wellness tip will remind us that health is our wealth.
Rule #4 Joy Boomerangs - Give one compliment a day.
Rule #5 Learn to Say "NO" Graciously - No, unfortunately I am unable to right now, maybe some other time.
Rule #6 Understand the Power of Discipline - Lead by example, be consistent and fair.
Rule #7 Surround Yourself with Positive People - When you surround yourself with positive people, you are bound to succeed.
I encourage each and everyone of you to view the video titled "Attitude is Everything" that can be found at: http://play.simpletruths.com/movie/attitude-is-everything
Please share the video, someone you know can certainly benefit from it.
Thank you for stopping by and remember to keep company with those who make you better. Spend some time and get acquainted.
May this school year be a great year for each and every one of us.
