About Me

Hi, I'm Ms. Christina McCants and I have been teaching at Pine Forest since 2015. I teach Culinary Arts 2, 3, & 4 and I love it! I truly enjoy watching my students grow their culinary skills and I am passionate about making sure my students leave my class with an industry certification! I have a bachelors degree in Hospitality management and graduated with a masters degree in Secondary Education Curriculum and Instruction in 2019. I have loved to cook and bake my entire life and I am always looking for new recipes to try with my students. I taught cake decorating and art before coming to Pine Forest. In my free time I enjoy exercising, traveling and trying new foods! 

Industry certifications 

Students have the opportunity to earn the Servsafe and NRFSP certifications. These certifications are respected certifications in the food service industry. Students with these certifications will have an advantage when entering the workforce after high school.
