Part of teaching entails creating opportunities for kids. I have always enjoyed cooking and reading about the lives and experiences of famous chefs.  I created the New River Middle Cooking Club so that our fine and inquisitive students can get a chance to create their very own dishes and share a delicious dinner with each other after a long day of school.  Aside from regular meetings, ten students will be picked twice a month to create a dinner, salad, and dessert of their choosing; this ensures everyone in the club gets to cook at least once.  I have a pasta maker, rice cooker, vegetable steamer, ice cream maker, and several other kitchen items to bring in, and we are making use of the school's Home Ec room.  

Currently there are about 40 students in the club, but I expect about 80 students after word gets around. After researching ingredients, I anticipate costs will be about $75 per meeting.  This club entirely relies on sponsors.  Donors, expect thank you cards, and making a memorable difference in these amazing students' lives!  Thank you all!
