David has spent most of his life fixing things. As a kid, he worked in his father’s shop repairing small engines. When he joined the Air Force, he trained to work in an Electronics Lab troubleshooting and repairing electronic test equipment and then automated process control equipment in a paper mill after he left the service. He later went into education and taught students Pre-Engineering and Robotics at the Sanford Regional Technical Center. Now as the Director of the CTE School in Skowhegan, David continues to use his troubleshooting background to improve educational opportunities for students. David graduated from the University of Southern Maine with two Bachelor of Science degrees; Industrial Technology, and Applied Technical Education, and a Master of Science in Educational Leadership. He recently finished his Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Advanced Educational Leadership from the University of New England.
