High School Automotive Teacher Has Continued Success Recruiting and Retaining Girls

This article from the Institute for Women in Trades, Technology and Science profiles Philip Jelinek, an automotive technology teacher at Monrovia High School in Monrovia, California. Philip's retention and recruitment of female students is discussed. As the article states, "Because Phillip's background was teaching automotive apprentices about the occupation, his unique teaching style works well to recruit girls to his automotive technology classes." This instructor's strategies and approach to creating a welcoming environment for students may be helpful for other automotive, technology or vocational teachers.
