Hi, I'm Corry Kile, automotive instructor at Lower Columbia College. I'm excited to be chosen as one of five finalist for the 2012 Valvoline Automotive Service Excellence Teacher of the Year.
In my video you'll hear from students who are working on their two-year associate's degree in Automotive Technology at Lower Columbia College. I'm grateful for the opportunity to help them achieve their educational goals so they can enter the workforce and get good jobs.
Lower Columbia College is a small, two-year vocational and technical college located in an industrial area in southwest Washington State. This is my second year of teaching, and I love helping students. I graduated from the Phoenix Institute of Technology, am ASE Master Certified, and have 27 years of hands-on experience.
Thank you for the opportunity to submit a video explaining how I'm helping students build a strong foundation for tomorrow's technicians, but it's really the students who are the real stars!
