Glen Aldous Weight worked at Intermountain Indian School for 17 years, first as an elementary school teacher and later as a placement officer. In small classes of 20 to 25 students, he taught young Navajos between the ages of 16 and 21 and was teaching reading on a second or third grade reading level. He considered them good students -- cooperative and eager to learn. They attended his academic class mornings and took vocational training in the afternoons. After ten years of teaching, he went into Placement, which department placed students in off-campus jobs. They included after-school and weekend jobs during the school year, temporary summer jobs and permanent employment after graduation. He felt that Intermountain was an excellent facility for the Indian students.
