Teachers - Jr/Sr Construction, Calm
I came to western Canada to teach 15 years ago! I have taught in 5 Canadian provinces and have resided in Alberta for the past 12 years with my dear wife. I have taught here at Holy Cross since November of it's first year. For the past 6 years, I have been teaching junior high and high school construction. I love seeing the students excited about learning new lifetime learning skills!
Grade 7 students learn all about personal and shop safety and how to work safely with basic hand tools. They build three projects during the semester.
Grade 8 students study shop and machine safety and once comfortable using the machines, they build three projects during the semester.
High school students in Construction take a minimum of three modules during the semester. Their goal is to earn three credits in three different trade areas.
