I learned to weld in high school AG class and continued doing so around the farm. It would be safe to assume that my time welding on farm equipment directed my career path.
I always wish to instill with my students the same values that I learned growing up, because I know that through hard work, dedication, and perseverance one can achieve anything they set their mind to.
I changed careers after a short time and began working for a Government Defense contractor. I assembled and welded parts primarily for the Patriot Missile System.
During my time working for the contractor, I discovered my love for teaching. I am thankful to be a part of the Calhoun Community College Welding Department as an Adjunct Instructor for over one year now. I would love to see students graduate and continue to Calhoun where they can still have me as an instructor!
