Taylorville High School Taylorville , Illinois
After college I jumped back in the residential carpentry world as an employee and eventually as a co-owner of a construction company. This eventually led me to teaching the Construction Occupations program at a local prison for Lake Land College. After 4 years I went back to my old high school and took over the Building Trades Instructor position and in 2019 we relaunched the student house building program. We've been building student built high performance houses ever since. I was blessed to win one of the Harbor Freight Tools for Schools Prize for Teacing Excellence $50,000 prizes in 2022 and have been actively helping to promote the need for more trade programs in our schools.
