Why I chose education as my [2nd] career of choice: I am service oriented.

Personal interests: Watching and playing sports (although my playing days have been limited since becoming an instructor), movies (mainly Sci-Fi and current crop of comic book) and everything I do with the cadets and my daughter (and I'm proud to say she is math teacher at Lee's Summit HS, having started School Year 2016-2017).
