I am currently in my 11th 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).
