I picked the auto program because it is something I have always been passionate about and I wanted to learn further, building on what I have been taught at home. I saw an opportunity to further my education in a field I was passionate about and a teacher that genuinely cared because he was in my shoes before hand we clicked, since we both have a passion for automotive. This really set it in stone that I would continue taking classes in the Automotive Academy. I learned more than I ever thought I would about the automotive industry. This class and Mr. Fairbanks taught me the proper way to do things without harming myself or others, and to maintain a clean workplace because that is the way it should be. I learned more tips and tricks than I knew I could. Mr. Fairbanks also expanded my view of car culture--I was always a made in America guy, but he showed me that a variety of cars can be cool. My plans after high school are to go to college to earn a business degree, however keep up with automotive things in my free time. Once I do well enough in the world, I would love to open a restoration shop and just do what I have always wanted to do, sit around and restore cars and have an amazing time.
