My Students

Our students are teachers who are strive to be classroom leaders. These teachers and skilled workers that have come from many different technical trade areas. They share a passion for the trades and seek out any opportunity to learn new technology and teaching practices to employ in their classrooms and shops. Our teachers are made up of young and seasoned persons who work tirelessly developing curriculum. Through engaging professional development, networking, and industry speakers our teachers are able to develop enriched lessons and high quality training for students. These individuals first worked in the trades industry and have decided to share their love, passion, and knowledge with our younger generations.
