Scrambling Eggs with the Douglas County Teacher of the Year Mike Bedosky

At the beginning of the year I asked my students which teachers they would like to see come to our classroom and prepare a dish.  Coach Bedosky was mentioned first.   I was not surprised at all.   Mike Bedosky is a history teacher at Alexander High School.  He has his Master’s degree and is currently working on his doctorate hopefully to be finished in 2012.    When I questioned him about preparing a dish  for us he did not hesitate saying, “Sure I would love to!”     Mike is no stranger to my classroom.  He comes quite frequently at the invitation of my students.  They love him!  I encourage students to invite teachers to have breakfast, lunch, or whatever we are preparing at the time.  We treat our classroom as if it were a fancy restaurant.  With the preparation of the meal out-of-the-way carrying on table conversation with adults can sometimes be a little difficult for teens.     Coach Bedosky is the perfect role model for students.  When he is our guest he has the entire table at ease and engaging in conversation. I can tell that he is thrilled to be invited and truly enjoys this time with his students. And think about it, how many times does a student get to sit down and enjoy a meal with their favorite teacher?  And it is a perfect time for students to see teachers in a different light.    Even before Mike was chosen as Douglas County teacher of the year I knew that he was a great teacher.  He has the respect of the students as well as fellow teachers and his love for teaching shows even out of the classroom.  I am so  proud that he is an Alexander Cougar.  Congratulations Coach!  Now to the cooking-

Bedosky’s forte is scrambling eggs.  Easy enough!  The 6-foot-4,  289 pound former starter for the University of Missouri football team towered above my demonstration table.  I had to take photos from the side or he would have been photographed headless.  He was totally at ease preparing something that he says he shares with his two sons scrambled eggs.  While cracking the eggs and getting it all together he shared this with the students.  He said,  “My mother told me that I needed to know three things before leaving for college, how to cook, sew, and do laundry.”  I agree these are life skills that everyone should know!  Thanks Mike for the plug for Family and Consumer Science.     

There’s really no recipe here for you to follow.  Crack three eggs.

Beat together with a fork and pour in a teflon pan no fat added.  Then add shredded cheese.

Stir, stir, and stir until…

Here they are ready to be devoured by all students in my class Mike Bedosky’s Scrambled Eggs with Cheese.

A big thanks to you Coach Bedosky for sharing your time with us.  Alexander is proud to have such an outstanding teacher to represent the county!
