Day 7: “Would You Like Fries With That?”

McTeacher’s Night was unexpectedly fun and I discovered that I have a real talent for making ice cream cones! It was great working with various teachers from my school and seeing how excited the kids were when they spotted their teacher behind the counter!

My time was mostly spent calling out order numbers, making shakes (most noteably, the Shamrock Shake), and doing my best to make a perfect ice cream cone swirl! One misconception I would like to note is that making an Oreo McFlurry is not as easy as it looks. Getting the ratio of vanilla ice cream to Oreo crumbles is really key; too much of either and you’re looking at a real disaster when you start mixing the two. I am speaking from experience, I had the unlucky fortune of getting vanilla ice cream and Oreo splattered all over my face and shirt!

Even with a little ice cream in my face, I’d say my very first McTeacher’s Night was a great success and it’s good to know that if this whole teaching thing doesn’t work out, I could have a back-up career making shakes and ice cream cones!

    Congrats on your success! Our McTeacher Night is next Monday! I can’t wait! Looking forward to hopefully trying my hand at the ice cream!


  2. Good working with you partner! We made a great team except when you were pushing me out of your way! That turned out to be a really cool experience and I am glad I did it. I learned how crazy it can really get in those places, and also to not make mean comments to my partners.:)


  3. I’m sorry I missed it and glad to hear it was fun! SO very relieved that you have a back up plan to your teaching gig.. Like you’re ever gonna need it!!!!


  4. Having worked at McDonald’s in my youth I am glad others get that experience! I am sure the students loved it and am happy to hear that the company “gives back” a bit to the local communities. Sounds like you had fun!
