Industrial Arts - Woodworking
I graduated from Rossville Junior-Senior High School in Rossville, Kansas, just outside Topeka. Little did I know, I would be keeping my Red & Black! I then went on to Fort Hays State University. I entered the workforce for about six or seven years, before returing and completing my Bachelor’s degree in Technology Studies, and a minor in Sociology. I am currently enrolled at Fort Hays State University to complete my Masters of Education and English as a Second Language Endorsement.

This is my first teaching position, in a professional compacity. I have wanted to be a teacher almost my whole life – and I am finally here! When I entered high school, I fell in love with woodworking. I currently teach Introduction to Industrial Technology while I continue to build my program.
This year, Mr. Evans (Welding Instructor) and I will be co-teaching a new class, Production Blueprint Reading. This class will include basic drafting & blueprint reading, OSHA 10 Certification, and NCCER Core Curriculum, with a focus on Construction Math. This course will be offered in the Fall Semester.
