The Red Ledger: How long have you worked here

Jackie Palovick: I’ve been here 15 years as well.

TRL: Did you and Gloria Ballao start at the same time?

JP: Pretty much. Six months. Pretty much the same.

TRL: Experiences, people, anything that’s stuck with you?

JP: Every year there are new people coming in, and then there’s always something that seems to happen. One year- It’s not the best story, but it worked out well- we were doing a food demonstration of different types of hamburger patties to try. One of the students was sampling the food and he started to choke on the meat. We actually had to take his backpack off and do the Heimlich on him, and he was okay. It was a scary situation. It wasn’t a good situation, but we handled it. It’s always good to know what to do in different situations.

TRL: What about other situations?

JP: I know this year, we have a student [whose] food has to be puréed, so preparing that, it’s interesting to do that. You’d be surprised what you can put in a blender to taste good.

TRL: Have you worked at any other schools?

JP: Nope. This is the only one.
