Computer-Aided Design and Drafting
ABOUT MS. OSBORNE:
Ms. Osborne has been teaching at Weaver since March of 2005; coming from the industry with a background in Interior and Architectural Design. Before teaching, she worked with retail stores and furniture market showrooms in High Point, an architect in Greensboro and a Design/Build Firm in High Point; during those 15 years in the industry, she was privileged to design residential homes ranging in price from one hundred-thousand to over one million dollars. Ms. Osborne designed the Percy H. Sears Applied Technology Center Fountain in 1999 for Guilford Technical Community College, Jamestown Campus; the presentation drawing for the fountain is displayed in her classroom. In her spare time, she continues to design homes for family and friends. She also enjoys spending time with her daughter and family.
Ms. Osborne has been heavily involved with rewriting and piloting Drafting (Computer-Aided Design and Drafting) curriculum with NCDPI for the past few years; the new curriculum is more closely aligned with industry standards and certification. Ms. Osborne's architecture classes help design and draw construction plans for the structures the Weaver carpentry department build. Our current projects include "Tiny Houses" and Redesign/Reconstruct buildings for Safety Town in Greensboro. In 2016, Weaver donated our first "Tiny House" to Tiny Houses Greensboro; they are an organization who helps provide housing for the homeless in our community. Ms. Osborne is certified in AutoCAD, Inventor and Revit software; which is the Autodesk software used in industry and the newly revised Computer-Aided Design and Drafting curriculum. She is an advisor for TSA (Technology Student Association).
