Hi All,

Does anyone know how one would transition into Wood Shop Teaching? I have B.S. in Math Education in PA and wondered what extra classes or certifications/licences would be needed in general. Any advice would be helpful.

Thank You,

I am glad you are considering Industrial Education. First I woukd suggest you spend time in several shop settings. It is totally different than math, english etc. classes.

The skills needed: 1. You need to be mechanically inclined. 2. You need to be able to deal with multiple
Items and still be aware of everything else going on in the classroom at the same time.

Another thing to consider, is a program called Project Lead The Way (PLTW). You will need to research it and talk to your principal asit does take a committment -- it can lead to a multi year program.

Last, you need to contact the state credentialing agency for specific requirements for adding supplements to yourcredential.
