Favorite thing about being a teacher
After teaching 32 years I am still overjoyed to be part of a young designer's journey to becoming a productive citizen in the field of their choice. With the technology advancements I can reach out to a wider group of students' needs and build relationships on a professional level once the students graduate.

Favorite thing about the KCTC
The Kent Career Technical Center is not only an institution for education it’s a step in the journey for our young adults. KCTC fosters personal growth, career development and opportunities to meet the goals of the future. 
We lead learning because of the positive environment in which our students learn.
