Teaching Philosophy:

“Everyone learns in different ways, so I use a variety of methods to assist them and to guide them through the educational process. Most of all, we try to have fun. It is easier to learn that way. I am committed to outstanding quality education, creativity, organization, and the continued growth of Le Cordon Bleu culinary arts students.”
