Hospitality & Tourism
Commercial Foods & Culinary Arts – A Lake Tech Culinary Arts Alum was on campus as a guest cake decorator on October 20. The students were very impressed with her designs as well as the speed in which she could decorate a cake.
Each year, students learn how to decorate a pumpkin for Halloween. They are nothing short of spectacular!
Transportation, Distribution & Logistics
Auto Collision Repair and Refinishing – Auto Collision student Christina Keith presented Chef Koenig with a mini hood with their new logo on it. The process began when Christina took a photo from Chef Koenig, made a computer generated drawing, transferred it to a plotter, laid it out on the hood and then air brushed it.
On Thursday during the Fall Festival the Auto Collision class joined in the fun by dressing up. They won first place in the Chili Cook Off too!
ESOL – ESOL students had a lesson in using maps and giving directions. Students spent the morning planning a make believe town. They had to decide as teams what kind of businesses they wanted to have in their town and then make a map of their town. It was great fun and helped students use the language they are learning.
GED – It’s been a busy two weeks in Adult Education! Aramis Martinez came to speak with our class about the new Computer Systems and Information Technology (CSIT) program. He discussed all the courses within his program and what types of jobs students would qualify for upon completion. This lead to a more in-depth discussion about soft skills and what employers are looking for in their employees. College and Career Readiness skills are part of the Adult Education program.
Kathy Roberts, Kathy Girard, Pam Netherton, and Art Seidner went on their Educators in Industry field trip. They visited Marion County Community Technical and Adult Education Center in Ocala. They have a larger Adult Education program and run classes differently than LTC. However, there are many similar issues that we deal with. It was good to see another program and take away some ideas and reaffirm great things we do here.
We celebrated many things this week: LCPs earned, GED subjects passed, GED Ready scores high, and Mrs. Avelli’s birthday! We also enjoyed the Fall Festival activities.
Of course, lots of learning was going on too. Small group instruction in math, language, reading, and science took place. There was a GED science lesson about weather systems and how they are interconnected, a comparison of hurricanes and tornadoes, hurricane safety plans, and students even made a tornado in a bottle!
