I grew up poor, and then into trouble. I served as a United States Marine on foreign and domestic shores. I worked for the largest Electronics Corporation in the world at the time just to get a lay off slip as my job went to Mexico. I bounced for over ten years from job to job trying to become stable again in a destabilizing economy. I was forced to re-educate myself more than once just to survive, but I did it. I have found that survival ties in with constant education. Some of it is formal, and some of it is not so formal.
I finally found my own common ground working with teen-aged boys that struggle from some of my own personal and similar issues. I also provide my technical skills to a technical college teaching young adults, and some not so young adults how to survive technically in today’s workplace. I teach computer information systems and office software applications. I now have over 15 years’ experience as a professional counselor, and 12 years’ experience as a technical instructor. I have learned to survive and make a living out of struggling. I am professional at struggling… trust me.
