Nikoya Taylor working in the kitchen Nicoya Taylor, who is currently at Episcopal High School in VA and is a DCMS alum,  joins The Island School community as an apprentice, working to help 'The Ladies' in the kitchen. She shares her initial impressions below:

My first week working in the kitchen has definitely been a great experience. I've learned to appreciate so much by working with Sheryl, Tiffany, Mrs. Becca, and Ms. Mooch, such as the hard work the kitchen staff at my school put in during a regular school week. Although it may seem easy making dinner for an enormous number of staff and students everyday, isn't as easy as many may think. I've learned so much from each of these intelligent ladies and I hope that this experience continues to be amazing throughout the remaining seven weeks.
