    I am a new instructor to PSSC this school year 2015-16 although I am beginning my 33rd 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.
