Roast Teacher, with a Budget Reduction?

Chancellor Michelle A. Rhee, perhaps trying to prove that she can take the heat and stay in the kitchen, will join star chefs Carla Hall and Delilah Winder for the TrueFlavors Celebrity Cook-Off on Nov. 12 at CulinAerie, a cooking school in Northwest.

She'll be part of a team that has 35 minutes to make a specialty drink, appetizer, main course and dessert with ingredients they will learn about only moments before the contest. The event is a fundraiser for TrueChild, an advocacy group that presses media and toy companies to move away from gender stereotypes.

Bill, it's "dessert," not "desert." A desert is arid land with usually sparse vegetation. Oh, and by the way, I'm a DCPS teacher! Who's incompetent now?

Under Rhee people have lost jobs quicker than 35 min. At this point there is nothing she can do that I will ever find impressive. All I see is another chance to be in the media and possibly to change her image. The witch thing did it for everybody and her actions speak more directly to that picture than any other visual we will have. Unless of course at the cook-off the product is the witch's brew.

candycane1, "Double bubble, toil and trouble", how much of this witch's brew do you think she will be making and who will she be serving it to since the teachers affected by the RIF will be gone - principals maybe?
