What do you get when you combine a Spanish 1 class of 25 students with an Introduction to Culinary Arts and Hospitality Class of 21 students, then mix them all together with a globalism theme stirring in a generous amount of work and preparation with a final topping of fun and enthusiasm? A recipe for “The Ultimate Collaboration Challenge”! “The Ultimate Collaboration Challenge” was created when Mrs. Rodriguez’s Spanish 1 class visited Mrs. Hoobler’s Intro. To Culinary Arts & Hospitality Class on October 13th and together accomplished many objectives. These included the joint celebration of National Hispanic Month as the Culinary Class prepared four different Hispanic Food Truck Projects.
