SHADE-TREE MECHANICS Learn basics, and prepare for the inevitable flat

S

he calls herself a “shade tree mechanic” describing that she learned to repair cars at home, often on Saturday afternoons, out of necessity to help her sons care for their cars, and to relieve stress. At SUU, Dr. Angela Pool-Funai serves as an assistant professor of political science and public administration, and is also director of the university’s Master of Public Administration Program. She is the author of the textbook, “Ethics in Fiscal Administration,” and is a single mother to five sons. Having never been afraid of getting dirty, and with growing boys approaching driving age, Angela realized there were some basic lessons she wanted to share with them: how to change a tire, check the oil, jump a battery, etc. “As they began driving, their first cars were pretty old models, so my lessons evolved from the basics into us learning together how to replace a starter and fuel pump, rebuild a carburetor, drop a fuel tank, and a variety of other as-needed projects.”

Feel empowered to walk into a parts store and know what you need, or know what to do when you’re stranded on the side of the road with a flat. While being a professor is Angela’s “paid job,” she considers parenting an equally significant “unpaid job,” and both keep her quite busy, and at times a little stressed. “I don’t see the different hats I wear as being different parts of my personality because they all support each other,” she said. “My education has equipped me to be self-sufficient and resourceful, parenthood helps me build rapport with my students, and being a grease monkey gives me a healthy outlet for stress.” Learn more about how to prepare for the inevitable flat, and more in Angela’s new class, “Car Care Basics.” Considering enrolling a friend, or teenager along with you.
