Continuing to go after his dream at 50 years old

Dear Mr. Nelson,
You may or may not remember me, but I graduated this past May from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a B.S. in Elementary Education. At one point during college I did a research paper on the shortage of male teachers and I sent you a series of interview questions that was part of my paper along with other resources I received from MenTeach.

I just wanted to say thank for this website and keep up the good work. I am proud to report that I have just been hired as a TSS agent for Wesley Spectrum Services of Allegheny County in Pennsylvania. Although this work will involve mostly home visits to children with Autism and other emotional and behavioral issues, I will occasionally visit children in their schools. I am hoping to pursue my Master's degree in Special Education very soon. Even though I will not be in front of a classroom full of eager young students, I will be doing something that I feel is my true calling in the education field. It has taken me longer than most people to complete this journey as I am 50 years old, but the effort was worth it.

Thanks again for all you do.

Sincerely,
Randy Davis
