I am happy that I chose the Construction Technology program. It's very fun. It is not an overly structured learning environment, and we get to make and design things as we want them. Mr. Peachy is my favorite teacher I have ever had. I am enjoying our bathroom building project - we are installing a toilet, vanity, dry-wall, lights, and electrical. This program has helped me learn more social skills. I was a very shy person, but to move forward in this class, you have to ask questions, socialize, and collaborate with your teacher and peers to develop your skills.
