Mr. Jeffrey Gates
I teach Project Lead the Way - Engineering classes and Computer Programming classes at Weaver. I love teaching students about being creators of technology and creative users of technology, but my favorite thing about teaching is seeing students become independent problem solvers.
Before teaching, I was a business owner and engineer. I spent twenty years working for NCR Corporation and Cisco Systems as a hardware development engineering and embedded software engineer. I graduated from the University of South Carolina with degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering.
Scientists discover the world as it is; Engineers create the world that has never been. -- Theodore Von Karman
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. -- Calvin Coolidge
