TechEd Alum Rebecca Mair (BEd'20) was profiled in the Whig Standard. The article discusses the path she forged in the trades despite a learning disability. She now teaches the trades at both Napanee District Secondary School and Loyalist College.
“I think for me, getting into teaching, that’s where it shone for me,” she said. “I was always told, ‘You’re not going to be able to do this or that, your learning disability is going to hold you back.’ I am living proof that it hasn’t. I was able to be successful in every career that I had. I’ve been successful in college five different times, even in a business course that was very theory-heavy. And I went to university, something that a lot of people didn’t think I could ever do. The trades did that for me.”
