Meet the Health Care HVAC Technician Instructor
Bill Sansagraw has been hired as the new maintenance technician in a health care setting program instructor at MAC.
Sansagraw, who joined the college on April 1, said he’s enjoying his teaching experience so far.
“It’s been very satisfying, watching students grasp concepts that were just introduced to them, or watching them connect the dots to discover that what they thought they knew inside and out, might have another perspective,” he said.
Sansagraw holds an associate of science in electrical/electronics from Mineral Area College, a two-year certificate in electrical from UniTec Career Center, and a two-year certificate in HVAC from Ranken Technical College. Before accepting the instructor position at Mineral Area College, Mr. Sansagraw served as a Biomedical Equipment Manager and Lead Equipment Tech for American Red Cross from
2002 - 2013.
When he’s not teaching at MAC, Sansagraw enjoys fishing, spending time with family, and “repairing anything that’s broken.”
