It’s a true dichotomy having a child with a disability and being a person who assists individuals with disabilities find a job and begin working. A parental perspective is so different at times I forget all I know and preach.
Andrew, you should be well acquainted with him by now, is our remaining offspring still living at home. He is a senior this year and is on target to graduate. Frankly he is doing well in school and gets great grades. Andrew was presented with a Student of the Month at New Market Vocational Skills Center, Culinary Program recently. Andrew wants to be a chef and he has his future training all planned out. Finish a two year degree at the SPSCC culinary program, then on to a program like Le Cordon Bleu, College of Culinary Arts in Seattle. Then spent time in Paris France to receive instruction in French cuisine and pastry, on to Rome to learn Italian cooking and then to Soul Korea to round out his international cooking flair by learning Korean BBQ. Between you and me I am convinced he is interested in becoming a chef because he likes food and likes to eat…not so much in preparing food. Well I digress.
