Hey welcome aboard to Lumberjocks Barry!
Love teachers! I taught 8th grade Science for several years then went back to school in order to get the “BIG” desk. Got my PhD in Educational Administration, and then I started administrating/principal-ing the big desk in Middle and High School.

I think it is great that you used to teach Shop. I never got to do much of that in my years growing up, hence the reason for “me” to pick up woodworking in retirement. I was/am rather hyper, a good reason for Shop teachers to “suggest” going the academic route, other than Shop. No problems man!... got my “OWN” shop now-a-days! ;-)
Enjoy your time here Barry. You will find it is worth every minute of it!
