Mr. Kevin Reese Sr

Welcom Parents and Students,


My name is Kevin Reese Sr. aka Coach Reese. I will serve as your student(s) Culinary Arts teacher. We are about to have an extremely exciting and informative school year. This class will not only be cooking because my main focus will be job skills, interview skills, professionlism, communication and then cooking. It is goal and focus to teach your student(s) to be able to go out in the world and clearly communicate with anyone at anytime anywhere and for any reason. I am truly passionalte about teaching, your student(s), and culinary arts. Additioanl, i hope to pass that evergy onto you and your student(s), so that one day you will not only have a great job, but career you can enjoy and know you are doing something for a great purpose. 

I decided Johnson & Wales University was the college for me because it allowed me to fulfill a passion of mine. Johnson & Wales offered me the opportunity to take something that I loved to do and have a formal training. After serving as the cafeteria manager at both H.J. MacDonald and New Bern High School transitioning into the classroom will create a new and exciting opportunity for me to teach students some of the things that have driven me to success.

Why do I teach?
I teach because it is more important to me that I plant good seeds into the future of our students and give them the tools they will need to secure their futures.
