People of Fenton: Anonymous Teacher

Amber Kelly, Opinions Editor

“When I was in college I had a job lined up with a professor and then I had another company call and say ‘Oh we’re interested in having you work with us.’ I didn’t quite understand that and relayed it to my professor. I must’ve misunderstood, and he must’ve understood that as I’m getting a different job, so he took the job that was for me and then helped someone else out. Then for the next four or five months I couldn’t find a good engineering job, I had so many limits on my life, alright I want to live within and hour of Detroit, I don’t want to work with polluting chemicals, I don’t want to work for a pharmaceutical company because I don’t take pills. With all these other things I ended up with becoming a teacher because of that one phone call.”
