Degrees and Certifications:
I am a graduate of Southern Oregon University and have been in Southern Oregon on and off for nearly 25 years. My degree is in Biology but I came to teach Manufacturing through a lot of years of experience in custom woodworking. I love teaching in CTE for many reasons but at the center of it all is the fact that I often get to work with students throughout their entire High School career as opposed to just a semester or two in the Sciences. We are in the middle of a very exciting time in our little department here at GP. Our program is making some dramatic advances into the world of multiple materials manufacturing with the use of modern technologies such as 3D printing and computer controlled machining processes. We have a lot to learn but this is going to be an incredibly fun time for all involved.
