Teaching Philosophy
I believe in teaching welding for life. Welding is not just a skill to be learned but a tool to succeed in life. Being a welder can give a student a feeling of pride as they weld buildings, pipe lines, ships, and even art sculptures. Welding provides students with an opportunity to generate a strong income to help them succeed in life. A welders work endures time, thus the act of welding is an art that last generations. What welders build change the skyline in cities across the world.
