Stirring things up

Original post made on Nov 14, 2008

Running a catering company out of a classroom is a pretty daunting task. Yet when the culinary students at Village High School hear the words "production day" from instructor Kit Little, they are quick to wash up and don aprons to get the job done. Preparing ingredients and taking the role of head chef or sous chef of the project, the cooks in training do it all, keeping to their slogan, "we like to stir things up."

Great story, just one thing noted. Please get that hair into a hair net! If the health department finds out that these kids are selling food that is prepared under unsanitary conditions then your cooking program is gonna be cooked for good.

Great to see a positive story for the students at Village...My boy was transferred there in his Junior year, his last stop before no more options for school and he sure did turn things around...I love seeing kids feeling good about what they are doing! Thanks

Kit Little runs a fabulous program that gives many students a huge boost when they have previously struggled in a traditional school setting. I have been in this classroom, it is amazing to say the least. These students are encouraged to be creative and held to a very high standard, and quess what...the food is delicious! Hats off to these students and especially to Kit, she is an exemplary teacher who has put in an immense amount of time developing a curriculum, updating it constantly to make sure all of the most recent standards and trends are included. Kit is an inspiration to many teachers in her profession and certainly shatters the myth that teachers work short hours and have summers free, this lady's constanly working to improve this program. Thanks to the Pleasanton Weekly for this inspirational story!
