I started teaching at PSSC in 2015 and am beginning my 36th year teaching in Washington. I have always taught career and technical education classes focusing primarily in the construction field. At my last teaching assignment, my students and I built 14 homes in a 22 year span. Not only did we build each home but we also built all of the interior cabinetry. I very much enjoy building and am motivated to see students become interested in construction. There are so many great possibilities for young talented students.
