Culinary instructor named Schenectady's top teacher

Laura Macey
SCHENECTADY -- Laura Macey, the culinary arts instructor at Steinmetz Career & Leadership Academy, was named teacher of the year in the city school district on Friday.

Macey, a native of Stillwater who has been in the district for 27 years, works with students to do more than simply cook. The curriculum includes life skills such as interacting with customers, working in teams, menu and event planning, meeting professional standards, as well as being given the freedom to experiment with recipes in the classroom kitchen.

As part of the Steinmetz culinary program, students serve lunch there four days a week and cater special district events and meetings, including the Schenectady Education Foundation’s annual gala at Proctors.
