THE KTEL PROGRAM ENDS AT GM TRUCK

    Due to divisional down sizing and cost cutting in 2001, the
    KTEL course was terminated at our training center.  
    I left the training department and went back into the
    plant as a skilled tradesman.  

    This unfortunate turn of events (for me and the people
    on the waiting list for KTEL) created an awkward situation
    of ny having a terrific program to deliver and no place to
    deliver it.  

    From 2001 through 2003 I continued to work with
    John Green at the CEDARS corporation in Flint to develop
    and deliver TIP (Think In Phonics), a phonetic based
    reading program.  

    I helped John teach clients contracted primarily through
    the state of Michigan’s Flint offices for Michigan
    Rehabilitation Services and Michigan Works.  The clients
    taught to read ranged in age from teens to senior adults.
