Father-to-be wants to teach

[MenTeach: You can read more about Jonathan and his work as a teacher AND appearance on Good Morning America here.]

I am currently working as an Employment Consultant for the College for Technical Education in Lexington, Ky. I work with the Early Childhood Education department to recruit and career place students once they receive their CDA.

I recruited the first male to the program, his name is William Redd. William is a former graduate of our Building and Trades program. William has a son due any day now. He came to me a few months ago nervous about being a father for the first time. I encouraged him to look into our ECE program. I told him that it would give him a great knowledge base for working with young children.

William is doing a wonderful job working with the children of Campus Kidz Child Development Center he is on track to get his CDA November 2012.

Today William conducted his first Circle Time lesson and activity on story "Pete the Cat". He did an amazing job, I am attaching a photo of William, the children and myself.  I am so proud of William. I am confident that one day he will be an amazing teacher.

I am on my way to a meeting, hope to here from you soon.
