Our school is a small, rural school in a high-poverty area. Agriculture and the agriculture program is very important, but sometimes this program can be expensive and therefore struggles to provide basic expendable equipment. The instruction that I provide will hopefully provide a lifetime of knowledge and good habits.
They frequently ask to come down to the Ag Shop during study halls or to stay after school because they enjoy the activities that we do and feel that it is a safe, supportive place for them to be.
They are here by choice, not by chance.
My students will use these new DeWalt Bench Grinders to properly prepare and finish their welding / metalworking projects. One of the two will be outfitted with the set of wire wheels and will also be used with the buffing and polishing pads.
There are more students enrolled in my Agriculture classes this year than ever before and they need adequate and appropriate tools to keep their projects moving forward.
These bench grinders will allow more students to do more work and will allow them to create higher quality outputs.
Having additional tools available will allow more students to work on a variety of different projects at the same time, especially for those students who choose to spend their lunch, study halls or after school in the Ag Shop working.
