ATI’s success is derived from not only the experience that instructors bring to the classroom, but also the desire to pass along their knowledge to the next generation of techs to carry the mantle. With that in mind, ATI is excited to welcome Mr. Steven Dotson to its instructor list in the Automotive Technology program.
Mr. Dotson comes to ATI possessing both real world skills and the passion to get others excited about fixing automobiles.
“It has always been in the back of my mind,” Mr. Dotson says. “Even when I was an automotive student, I knew that I wanted to be an instructor and share my skills with others.”
An honor grad at Wyotech, Mr. Dotson also attended the prestigious BMW step program. And while he applied his craft in the field, the opportunity to move forward in his career here at ATI was too good a chance to pass up.
“I grabbed the chance to teach at ATI as soon as the doors were open,” he said. “I love to teach students my passion for automobiles and when I see the light bulb turn on when they start to understand, and I get to see that spark, it is a great feeling that brings me right back to when I was a student like they are now.”
