It is always a blast to watch a new group of Carpentry students enter the building. Some of them have no idea of what they are getting into while you have some students that bring a bit of trade experience with them. Some of the coolest things to watch are when you see the group starting to meld, or when a student takes a fellow student under their wing and does some peer to peer teaching. I do believe that one way to learn is to show someone what you were just taught. As teachers we teach more than just a trade. Whether we try to or not, we teach the students life skills. Remember, our actions speak louder than words. We need to do our best and welcome everyone into our school.
