From Alumnus to Teacher – Donminic Goosby

From Alumnus to Teacher – Donminic Goosby

Auto Service Technology Teacher, Donminic Goosby

Donminic Goosby enrolled in the Automotive Service program at Metro Technology Centers in 2007 and shortly after completing the program, attended Pro-Tech Automotive Technology.

“I have always had an interest in auto service,” Goosby said. “I actually grew up in a salvage yard, so I’ve always been around cars. I used to like watching my uncle pull the parts off of them.”

After his technical education, Goosby started in higher ed by obtaining his Associate’s Degree in Automotive Technology before going on to earn his Bachelor’s of Science in General Education, all the while, working in the Auto Service Industry.

Despite his years of education and experience, Goosby was hesitant when he was presented with the job opportunity at Metro Tech.

"When I got the opportunity to teach Auto Service at Metro Tech, I was scared at first, I thought I was going to fail, but something told me to jump in," Goosby said.

Now, Goosby is taking that same inspiration and passing it on to his students who may have their own doubts in themselves.

“I tell them not to be afraid, because everything takes practice,” Goosby said. “You can’t be afraid to mess up. Because you learn from your mistakes.”

Not only is Goosby an official member of the “MT4Life” Family, but he has also taken his passion for CareerTech and passed it on to inspire family of his own.

“Metro Tech has always been like family to me,” Goosby said. “I have a younger son who attends and a daughter who is about to graduate from the Radiologic Tech program. My oldest son graduated last year from the Construction and Architecture program, as well. Metro Tech can really open doors for you, and they will support you along the way."
