My Teaching of DUI Classes

For  years I have been teaching DUI classes for first time offenders in Florida--over 1000 students I estimate. This has become a mission for me. I want to keep these students (whom the court calls offenders) from getting a second DUI and even from killing someone. I listen to their stories and my heart goes out to them.  We move from grumbling about the DUI, to being humbled, to commitment and then habit forming. They open up their hearts to me and I hope to inspire the students to never, ever, ever get another DUI. Some may also gain new faith and perspectives on life. I hope so.

Thanks for your careful reflection here. Best to you as you continue to not drive impaired by alcohol or other drugs; also DO not text and eat while driving. Pull over to the side of the road if you need to do that.
