After retiring in December with 30 years of service,including 20 years with the Virginia Department of CorrectionalEducation ,and the last 10 years as Virginia Direcor of Community Corrections Education, I have now accepted a new position and challenge. My new position is Dean of Education for Fortis College in Richmond, Virginia. This is a private college teaching allied medical skills to men and women right out of high school,as well as returning adult students in pursuit of new or better careers. Interestingly , I have already began applying concepts learned in community corrections in training my staff. Examples include teacher training related teaching transitional life skills , motivational interviewing, employability skills and linking students to community resources. I have also counselled a number of students who have had experiences with corrections either personally or with family members. I also am continuing to host postings on this site, on Correctional Education related to Community Corrections, as well as continuing to serve as International CEA President's Council Chairman.
