Meet the Teacher:  Dale Dunlevy

I’ve enjoyed being a career tech instructor at Portage Lakes Career Center (PLCC) for past 4 years. Prior to teaching at PLCC, I served 6 years in the US Navy, and worked new construction plumbing, HVAC and electrical work for 10 years as a self-employed contractor. After that, I worked for PLCC doing maintenance of the equipment and facilities for several years. I’ve been married for almost 20 years and have 3 children. In my spare time, I enjoy going to my kid’s activities, working around my home and golfing.
