January 17, 2020
Carlos Whitfield is a chef at Duncanville High School, and has been teaching for 6 years. Whitfield teaches Intro to Culinary, Culinary 1, Advanced Culinary, and Practicum Culinary. Right now, Whitfield teaches Advanced Culinary which is a career path way through hospitality and tourism. Whitfield gives them a recap of what they should have learned the basics, and take by heart what they are going to be doing in this industry like sanitation, proper knife skills, just the key things that keep people from getting sick. Then, Whitfield starts talking about the art of culinary arts , putting meals together, things that will take them to the next level. Whitfield wants to make sure that they are prepared to leave the class and go out into the real world and get a job. Food is the motivator, when they get to see their fruits of their labor that is an easy fix. Whitfield makes the class feel as a family and tries to make them prepared for the world.
