I obtained a B.S. in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Kentucky eleven years after graduating from Portsmouth High School. I had many years as a night school student in engineering at Portsmouth's Ohio University Branch. I was working as a metallurgical technician in Goodyear Atomic, Piketon Ohio laboratory. My first metallurgist had us conduct seminars and I discovered that I enjoyed teaching. I accepted a Division Metallurgist postition for Abex Denison, a hydraulics manufacturer in Columbus and moved my young family to Westerville fifty years ago. Soon after I also began part time teaching metallurgy, manufacturing processes and math courses at what has become Columbus State Community College.
I have taught thousands in the class rooms and tutored hundreds in the CSCC's Developmental Education math lab for over forty years. My teaching/tutoring associates there in DevEd are exceptional people who have enjoyed much success in preparing so many earnest students who are after associate degrees and several of them have gone on into higher education degrees and professional jobs. I have written and had published eleven books of interview stories of people of integrity which have included many of my teaching associates.
Negotiable to an extent.
I feel very comfortable in presenting math courses up through Algebra 1. Teaching part time has brought me into contact with those students I relate to from my own lifelong learning processes. A Plutarch statement I have included even in final exams is: "The mind is not a vessel to be filled. Rather, it is a fire to be kindled." Most of my students excelled in the class I taught and I don't remember a one missing that particular question.
