Thread Name: How many mudcatters are teachers?
Subject: RE: BS: How many mudcatters are teachers?
I taught art in a middle school and mechanical drawing in a highschool for several years. I occasionally teach as a volunteer art/science teacher in our local school systems. For 20 years I have climbed into the sky as a crane mechanic at Bath Iron Works. Recently a new position has opened up here at the shipyard. Seems that OSHA now requires all crane operators to go through a more rigorous training to reduce the number of accidents. BIW is looking for a crane instructor from within, so I have applied for the position. If I get the job it doesn't mean I will retire from climbing into the sky, but I will get a chance to use my teacher training again. Wish me luck.
