• Hello.

    Welcome to the Metals Technologies Program at Weaver Academy.  I have been teaching Metals Tech since 1998 starting with my 1st teaching assignment at Lee County High School in Sanford NC. I accepted my teaching position at Weaver Academy in October of 2006.

    Prior to my teaching career, I worked as a Tool and Die Maker at Moen Inc. in Sanford NC for approximately 12 years. I served my Apprenticeship at Moen and I am a registered Journeyman Tool and Die Maker with the NC Department of Commerce.
