Chef Jeffrey Smith
Culinary Arts Teacher

I love teaching at Sollers because it is a small school with dedicated teachers and staff. It is a great place to share my passion for cooking with students. Culinary Arts is a great program to be in at Sollers Point. Students in Culinary Arts say, “ I wouldn’t trade my experience at Sollers for anything.” You get the opportunity to cook and eat the food you prepare in a state-of-the art kitchen. You will have new food experiences and learn how to run your own business.   After two years in the program you will be ready to start an exciting career in the food industry.
