Students Sharpen Life Skills in Kitchen

BRIGHTON, Mich. -- "Good job, chef girl."
Special-needs student Jack Krayer gave this compliment to Renee Chodkowski while munching on a bagel topped with cream cheese and vegetables at Hawkins Elementary School. Krayer and other students, some mentally and cognitively impaired, made their own bagel faces and corn dogs Nov. 4 during a cooking class put on by guest chef Renee Chodkowski, a Livingston County resident known as The Great Foodini.
The students were having fun, but educators said they also were learning something very important — basic life skills that could help them as they grow up.
