Teaching financial accounting at Algonquin College, at various points, 1985 and 1986. The financial accounting course that would be taught at a university was cut into two or three smaller sections. Many of the students attempting to improve life circumstances. First time exposure to a number of young women balancing parenting responsibilities with a desire to improve opportunities through education. Travelling from significant distances, in many cases, to get to the evening class. First and only time encountering a student who lived in a trailer park. Very different class composition from those at university.

Such admiration for effort and dedication. Reflecting on all those marginals with an exaggerated sense of entitlement, compared to this student group, demonstrating the best in self-improvement through personal effort and commitment.
