As an instructor, at every school we learn more about the industry and the people in it. I cherish the friendships that I have made over the years with other instructors and students.

I have had the enjoyment of seeing students that I have taught multiple times obtain their credentials and return to the schools as Instructors. There are several instances where we have taught 2 generations of the same family. 

Watching colleagues that took part in the education program excel in the industry is probably the most rewarding aspect of working with the DHI Education program.
