Kudos, too, to Boomer. He puts effort in here to steer students in the right direction, because he actually gives a damn.

Big thank you and shout out to my student - did I mention that, being from the south side of Chicago, that flattery, bribes and other forms of corruption work just fine with me! If I haven't given you and 'A' for today, I will have to do so!!! (LOL!!! JUST JOKING!)
Really, really; what I do here is not 'my' program. I am whore, and freely admit it! I steal ideas, inspiration, concepts, techniques and anything else that makes good sense from programs that I see are effective. I am always open to new ideas and change. I try to dove tail as many learning techniques into one exercise as possible. I do genuinely care about the students and their success. I have had people come into the program, and after I talk to them, they end up going in another direction because that other path better suits what they want out of a career then what the school is offering. I ain't about taking their money and shoving them out the door; I want them to learn a life-changing career.
Anyway, enough about me. I don't have the best program in the country, and there is always room for improvement. Sometimes I screw up completely. Next year, I will be taking over the program, and then we will some real positive changes. I am not the most knowledgeable guy out there. I got into this because I was too busted up to go back to the field. I miss the outdoor work, I miss building things and working with other journeymen. I miss traveling. I don't miss having to poop in a little plastic house!
Thanks to all!
