Make him work as if he wasn't any different then others. When using the tools, you make the choice. If he is safe, let him use by himself. If not, stand right next to him guiding him along. Just my input.

NCLB as mentioned before.
Topic: Help me to find a proficient contractor
Posted: Tuesday, March 17, 2009 10:07:51 AM
A very good place to find a "Good" contractor is a hardware store. Ask the owner, he will be helpful to steer you down the correct path. Also, ask friends, community members you see getting work done to their house. Also, never hire someone that can start tomorrow, good contractors will be busy and need sometime to complete current jobs. Ask for references and photos of similar work they have done comparable to your job.

Topic: Cabinet building.
Posted: Monday, February 23, 2009 7:43:58 AM
Cabinet building can be very interesting to say the least. If you look back in my earlier post about some work I have done you can see hard maple kitchen cabinets I built.

I used a router for the stile and rails along with the raised panels. The drawers are 3/4" HM with the sides being 3/4" plywood. I have a excellent knowledge on cabinet building so if you have any questions just ask.

I only had 750 in materials for a kitchen that had 18 linear feet of cabinets and that doesn't included a pantry that is 24x24. Also, my wall cabinets are 44 inches tall.

IMO - It is cheaper to build then buy. Especially if you want quality.
Topic: Teaching Autocad to Middle School Students
Posted: Wednesday, February 18, 2009 11:44:58 AM
I dont currently do AutoCad at my position becuase of budget reasons I guess. Anyhow, during my student teaching I used a overhead projector and had the kids follow along while I drew a couple of objects and then set them free to complete the rest.

Hope this helps.

There is also a special light source that you need that keeps all heat away from fumes.

Hope this helps any,

The pictures are at a different website but hope you enjoy.

I just finished grouting last night on the countertop and backsplash but figured I would share the pics. I have a few of my little helpers also.

I'll second that. I'm a Technology Education teacher (5 years now) but I also run my own cabinet shop where I make Kitchen Cabinets (etc) and Trim. It is amazing the kids I mentor (student teachers) that dont have the knowledge of woodworking b/c the college levels don't include this luxary into their curriculum.

"Four years for a piece of paper" - I think this topic shows the powerful meaning behind this qoute.

I teach middle school technology education grades 6 - 8. I "hammer" the kids in grade six with measurment and fractions. I have found excellent math skills in later grades becuase of this.
