I am excited to join the PACK. Although I earned my first teaching Certification in 1995, I chose to work in idustry after graduation. I have experience in a variety of industries and job titles. However, the one constant was my desire to get in the classroom and teach. I firmly believe that every step that you take and every instance that you experience makes you who you are. I also believe that having experienced life from a variety of perspectives better prepared me to teach. I started my teaching career in 2013 at TISD. I taught Construction Technology and Principles of Architecture and Construction for 2 years and Welding Technology for 2 years. I will be teaching Ag Mechanics and Metal Technologies, Ag Fabrication and Facilities and Ag Practicum. The classes will not be easy. I fully expect the students to learn and work hard to learn. I will teach proper technique and every tip and trick that I know. The pride of seeing a project through from inception to completion is only overshadowed by the experience gained through the process.
A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.
