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 have an interest in automotive service and repair. They struggle to perform even basic vehicle services or repairs without appropriate, safe lifts, jacks, and jack stands.
Students struggle to learn in a work-like environment when they do not have the tools that are found in a modern work environment.
When I train my students for college and career readiness, it is important to be able to provide them with the appropriate tools. These automotive shop tools will help me ensure that my students can learn and work in a safe, modern environment. Without appropriate tools, we struggle to appropriately teach our students.
