His students love him because he’s such a good and effective teacher who really cares about them. He is also the person co-workers and new employees go to for help with everything from navigating technology like Blackboard to mentoring new faculty.
Chris has been instrumental in developing the curriculum in the Culinary Arts program, which includes creating the classroom/laboratory environment where students have access to the best balance of “real-world” simulations, safety, and the “soft skills” instruction that our industry partners desire. Not only does Chris teach the Advanced Culinary Skills/Advanced Food and Beverage Service classes, but he also manages CNM’s Bistro 106 restaurant, which has served over 3,000 people since 2014. Chris believes personal integrity and honest self-assessment are the keys to help students be successful and become contributing members of the community.
