The students that attended Friday's art show at John Muir Middle School had a number of attractions to choose from ? the food, the music or the walls covered in art. For 14-year-old Evan Leigh, however, the event was about none of those more obvious things ? it was all about the glamour. "This isn't just a deal, this is a way of life," he said, wearing a bow tie and waiter's outfit, stirring a bowl of red punch. "You know, all the parties and the glamour." In its second year, art teacher Scott Nobles has tried to make the art show as realistic and as glamorous as possible.

By definition, a teacher is one who helps students. A teacher is a guide or helper in processes of learning | May 31, 2008
A teacher’s role can vary between cultures. Academic subjects are emphasized in many societies, but a teacher’s duties may include instruction in craftsmanship or vocational training. That’s what the experts say. Most of us can remember our favorite teacher. We remember the ones we loved and the ones we didn’t like so much. Memories of the former, however, seem to last the longest. For many students and faculty members at John Burroughs High School, that person was Tania Hurd, the beloved culinary arts instructor who was one of three people killed when the helicopter she was riding in crashed Memorial Day weekend on Santa Catalina Island.

Molly Shore Once a week, the 17 students in Judy Shalhoub's Bistro Cooking class dice, slice, mince and puree on a grand scale.

A $1 donation usually gets them a 12-ounce cup of the week's soup. "I have a lot of teachers who regularly order," Shalhoub said. One week, the students might cook lentil soup, while another time it's creamy potato soup.

Crescenta Valley High School out-cooked eight other high schools Friday in a chili-making showdown at Glendale Community College, serving up what event organizers hope will be a yearly culinary competition. Russel Gruener, 18, a bistro class student at Crescenta Valley High, speculated on what set his team's recipe apart. "I think it's because we have barbecue sauce," he said. "We also have sirloin beef in ours instead of like some kind of pot roast or ground beef." The Crescenta Valley team's presentation — with white table cloths and a snowy antarctic theme — and its chili stood out enough to win the Grand Prize.
