Kathy Uecker

Mrs. Uecker is such a wonderful soul! She helped my daughter tremendously last year and especially when covid hit! She goes above and beyond for her students! Haven't met a better teacher yet! She truly cares for students! Simply Amazing!

Shane Webster

Mr. Webster inspired me by showing me that women can do just about anything men can do. He made working in the shop field fun and eye opening. He always would make sure that everyone is understanding the concept. He taught me how to weld! Not everyone can say that they have welded before. I'm so honored to saw that me as a woman, can weld! That was one of the coolest things I was able to do in high school! I was a little bummed that I was not able to have him as a teacher going into my senior year of high school but I am so blessed that I was able to have him as a teacher for 2 years. I learned so much taking his classes! He is such a good teacher and leader! I also want to thank him for his service. It means the world to me!
