Miriam Gonzalez, Culinary Arts Instructor

Being able to take advantage of this great opportunity to have an externship paid by the Pima JTED Foundation was an incredible experience. Having to get back in action at a kitchen was a little different than a few years back when I left the industry to become a Culinary Arts Instructor.  Having this experience helped me remember what my students are experiencing when starting a new job, how they feel about being able to perform on their own and employer expectations.”
