2 NEWS By Kastanny Bridges There is a great place in town to take your family to dinner! On Tuesday, June 18, 2013, Room 20 went to Js Sports Restaurant to interview their chefs. I interviewed Chef Sammy. He is the executive chef of the restaurant. He makes the menu and the schedule for the other people that work at the restaurant. He makes sure the food is good and it is done fast. He started to cook at Kleins Truck Stop. He started in 1979 in the restaurant business. He went to school in Napa Valley at the Culinary Institute of America. His mom taught him to cook when he was young and this makes him very comfortable being in the kitchen. He loves cooking food. It is his calling. Meeting Chef Sammy was a wonderful experience! June 2013 Worlds Best Chef at Js An Interview with Dr. Cecelia Galindo Do doctors help us? On Tuesday, June 18, 2013, the Summer School Eagles went by bus to McDonalds to meet and interview Dr. Cecelia Galindo. Dr. Galindo is an internal medicine specialist who sees adults with illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart problems. One of the most challenging patients she had was an older man that was collecting fluid in his body. It was very hard to regulate his sugars because he was already very sick. As a child, Dr. Galindo remembers when her mom smashed her finger in a door. She saw the doctors repair her moms finger in the hospital and that inspired her to be a doctor. Helping others is what Dr. Galindo loves about being a doctor. It took Dr. Galindo 12 years to finish her education and has been a doctor for 13 years. The hardest part of being a doctor for her is the time that she is away from her kids. When we asked her for advice, she said, Follow your dreams, work hard, dont listen to others, and believe in yourself.

10 NEWS. June 2013 An Interview with Dr. Joe Hernandez Do doctors help us learn? Well, some do! On Tuesday, June 18, 2013, the student reporters went by bus to McDonalds to meet and interview Dr. Joe Hernandez. Dr. Hernandez has been a doctor of education for 14 years. He is the Dinuba Unified School District Superintendent. He decided to become a doctor 15 years ago when he was a principal. The person that inspired him the most was Dr. Ford the principal he had when he was a classroom teacher. The main reason he decided to get his doctorate was to do research and help our schools improve. A normal day for Dr. Hernandez can be easy or challenging with situations that are hard to deal with. His working hours can be very long starting at 7:30am and sometimes not ending until 10:00pm. One thing Dr. Hernandez dislikes about being a superintendent is when students or teachers are unhappy. He feels the hardest part of his job is hiring new teachers. Something very few people know about Dr. Hernandez is that he collects antiques, especially old glass milk bottles. Dr. Hernandez enjoys talking to kids, encouraging people, and making our schools a better place. When asked, What do you love about being a superintendent? He said, I get to make a difference. The advice he gave to us at the end of our interview is to always do your best.

Becoming a doctor takes many years of education. First, Dr. Fernandez attended Reedley College and Fresno State for 6 years. After graduation he attended UC Irvine Medical School for 4 years. Last, he completed a 3-year residency program. Dr. Fernandez has been a doctor for 25 years. I always want to help and take care of people, said Dr. Fernandez. He loves seeing people get better from their illnesses. One thing he dislikes about his job is the long hours and being on call. Being on call means to be available immediately if needed. Dr. Fernandez is very busy and works long hours. He sees about 24 patients a day and on some days he also goes to the hospital to see more patients. When he is not working he enjoys traveling, camping, and seeing new places. One piece of advice he gave us reporters was to stay in school and do the best we can.
