    Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events (CRASE) training from 9 am to noon in TPAC. Open to all students.

I enjoy working with Chesapeake students because they’re motivated and eager to learn job skills. The college is small so I can get to know my students and really help them achieve their goals. We make sure that students get solid foundations in each class. I try to assign projects that will give students real-world experiences, and challenge them to try new things.
