Today’s Speaker: Robert Deetjen, Midcoast School of Technology
This is Robert’s 8th school year at Midcoast, but he started out as a high school social studies teacher. A student challenged him, ‘Why I am learning this?’ Robert started thinking about what he was doing. Now he works in Career and Technical Education, students have so much more opportunity. The school has been around since 1975. Students leave with the ability to earn a living wage once they graduate. There are 18 technical programs, taught by experts that teach at National and State Industry standards. Students come from islands and area high schools. Students earn certifications, 12 college credits and experience. Many students have employment often before they graduate.  Programs include auto collision and technology, Certified Nursing Assistance, baking and pastry and culinary arts, diesel technology, design technology, firefighting, EMT, machine tool, marine technology, medical science, outdoor leadership, pre-engineering, residential construction, small engine technology and welding and fabrication.
