To prepare for a career as a cooking instructor, take high
school courses in family and consumer science, English, math,
business, and science. Since many cooking terms are derived from
the French language, you might want to take French. Other foreign
languages that might be useful include Spanish and Italian. Speech
and communications courses will help you prepare for speaking in
front of groups of people. Teachers use computers to do research,
write reports, and calculate and report grades. Increase your
computer comfort level by taking all the computer science classes
your school has to offer. Finally, take as many culinary arts
courses as you can; these may be offered by your school, but also
by local community organizations or your park district.
