I now have a good job
"My Windham teachers showed patience, effort, and kindness; they were very helpful. They taught us even when some of us seemed unteachable. I now have a good job and a career due to the classes and skills learned through the WSD electrical trades program. I give all the credit to WSD. I can make an honest living, I am a citizen of society and I pay taxes – no one can take these things from me."
