West Side Institute of Technology
At the age of 25, I was hired by this Junior College in Cleveland Ohio to develop a curriculum and teach classes of 30 previously incarcerated students. Taught building maintenance, HVAC, electrical, and plumbing courses. This progarm at this school received special recognition from the president of the United States.
My students graduated able and competent to work in entry level positions in Facilities across the city.
I enjoyed working with this population, and marvelled at the tremendous potential within each of us to develop, learn, and act responsibly.
