I’ve always liked teaching as far back as I can remember. I’d even considered being a high school teacher early on. I served in the Army National Guard for 16 years, too, some time as certified instructor and supervisor of the battalion communications section. Today, I am a technical trainer at our crankshaft plant in Danville, Illinois. Here, I share my knowledge about machining for 26 years now. It’s a life dream that came true very unexpectedly.
