I am currently in my 9th year as a Tech Ed Teacher at Highlands High School (North of Pittsburgh). I am always looking to challenge my skills by learning new techniques and applying them to create new projects for my classes. Although teaching wood shop was my first passion, I have also taken a liking to teaching drafting and graphic design.

I got into woodworking in the 8th grade, and took every shop class that was offered in my high school. It only seemed fitting that I would go on to college, and then back to high school to do what I love (this time on the other side).

Welcome to Lumberjocks Tooch!

Reading “about you” above made me think back when I was in High School. I loved my Woodworking, Metal and Drafting classes so much I just wanted to stay there all day. Every class I took was worth its weight in gold I found out later in life! I have saved a ton of money over the years keeping all of our passions working as they should and taking care of all that could go wrong in our home, this home and the last 3. Learning the trades can save Big Money I always though and at 67 I’m still learning. Every time I fix or build something or draw up plans to build a shed, I think to myself… “I wonder how much that would cost if I hired someone”?

I thank all of my teacher’s for showing me the way and starting me off on the right foot. I think it is very important to become a Jack of all trades and then maybe pro or a CEO if need be! It all starts in Tech Ed class! You must learn to take care of your world first just as the early settlers did.

Sorry I got carried away here! Glad you found us here on LJ’s enjoy the site!
