Latham Works News
When it came time to research becoming a chef, Brennan enthusiastically chimed in, “Let’s call Joe! He’s been a chef for 25 years!” So Brennan called the Latham Kitchen and spoke with our chef, Joe Sweetland. After a brief chat with Joe, Brennan was able to relay the relevant information to his classmates. Rock Harbor was able to use previous interviews with a local veterinarian and a fire captain to answer other questions. They went on to ask a former waiter (me!) about the training required to be a restaurant server.
We have become so accustomed to using the internet to find answers to every question we have. It has been refreshing to show our students that you can connect with a real person and learn “from the horse’s mouth” authentically by reaching out to the community. Rock Harbor really picked up on this theme.
