I am the Intro To Ag Mechanics, commonly known as woodshop, teacher at ECMS. I have been teaching for 12 years, 11 of those in my current position in El Campo. In 8th grade Intro To Ag Mechanics we focus on safety and fundamentals of basic construction. We will use hand tools, hand held power tools, and stationary power tools related to wood working and construction. We also introduce metal working with a variety of tools including hand tools, hand held metal working tools, arc welders, mig welders, oxy-fuel cutting torch and plasma cutter. An introduction to surveying typically rounds out the year after the students build a variety of projects that are used on campus, throughout the district, or in the community. This is in addition to three projects that the students are allowed to take home for personal use. Through all these activities we strive to build characteristics that will make students successful employees in the modern workplace.
