Mr. Keith Thomas
Add Me as a Friend!
http://
A.T.E.M.S.
Hometown:
Abilene, Texas
Class Information:
Room Number: 5
Students per Class: 89
Class Description:
I teach two different classes. 1. Computer Applications 2. Introdcution to Engineering Design
Position:
Engineering Education Facilitator
Needs:
In my Engineering class I could use a laser engraver or a 3D Model printer. Each of these are essential tools to produce real outputs to students designs. It is better to have hands on products from a design than to have to wait for it to be made or not made at all.
My Philosophy:
Every student should have the opportunity to at least try. It is better to try and fail than to never try at all.
Personal Information:
About Me:
I attended a Vocational School when I was in high school. I enjoyed the "freedom to learn" environment. I entered the Air Force after graduation and after 20 years I finished my Bachelors degree.
College and Degrees:
I attended the school of hard knocks and graduated with honors. I then attended Abilene Christian University for two years to finish my Industrial Technology degree. After several years I pursued my Master's Degree online through East Carolina University.
Activities:
I enjoy hunting and all the associated activities that goes along with that. Camping mainly. I am a Certified Divemaster and I scuba dive assisting our instructors certifying new divers at the local college.
Favorite Books:
Any Frank Perretti works.
Why Do I Teach?:
To see the face and hear the expression of the "I got it" moment. That point when the student says, "Ah ha, I understand now."
