 Instructor:  Engineering and Robotics I and II 
             This is currently my 22nd year at the Career and Technical Center and 32nd year overall.  I am very excited about this year as we have a record enrollment for 2nd year students in this program.  We have 22 second year students  and 28 first year students. For the first time we will have two second year classes on A Day, and 2 first year classes on B Day.  We will also have 7 Career Pathways Experience student interns who have completed the two years of the program.  We also continue to be excited about our TSA chapter and had the Technology Bowl team finish 9th in the country at the National TSA Conference in Dallas, TX this past summer.  Our TSA Chapter has attended nine of the last 10 TSA National Conferences including the last seven in a row. We continue to expand the Vex Robotics competitions and intend to increase our number of Vex competitive teams to four or five this year.  We won the MS VEX Robotics State Championship and represented MS at the VEX World Championship in Louisville, KY this past April.
