My Students

Welders join things together. Good welders create bonds that are stronger than the metals they unite. I have had much the same experience this year teaching welding at our high school. My 23 students range from freshmen to juniors; some see welding as a likely career path while others enjoy the sheer power of mastering a skill and manipulating metal.

Some of my students have struggled in traditional classrooms, but once I moved them to the welding lab, faces lit up, hands began working, and minds opened to the possibilities and power of welding.

The students have become more focused on career paths and goals, but, perhaps even more importantly, they want to learn and improve.

Welding unites things, and I have now discovered that even more important than joining metal, is joining hearts and minds.

My Project

This Storage Bin Shelving Unit will allow me to keep all consumables and supplies organized in the welding lab. Instructors understand that even the most talented welder can be limited by the quality of their tools and supplies.

Instructors provide excellent welding programs, tools for learning such as VRTEX Virtual Reality Arc Welding Trainer.

These computer based training systems are educational tools designed to supplement and enhance traditional welding training. They allow students to practice their welding technique in a simulated and immersive environment.

As a welder instructor, I will provide the most reliable and straightforward welding training each student needs to be successful.
