OT I got a real JOB

So i've landed my first teaching job. I got a job teaching autos and welding at Middle Park High School in Granby Colorado. It's in a little town up in the mountains about 1 1/2 hours from Denver near Winter Park. I'm pumped it should be fun I get to start courpting minds. The auto shop is pretty nice with 2 hoists. The metal shop is sweet and even has a couple tigs, an iron worker, hydraulic tubing bender, and CNC plasma table. The way the school district works I only work Monday through Thrusday so it'll be 3 day weekends every weekend. I'll probably be living in the Longmont Colorado area during the summer and moving to Granby in the fall if anyone wants to wheel or visit.

Good job, Andy! You going to come to the Bash before heading out?

You the man...All growed up and stuff! Set a good example for your students. Do everything you can to engage them in the subject. Remember, the subject may be interesting to you...but might not be so much to them. It is your job to make it interesting and easy to learn.

Congratulations. The first job, is the one you will always look back on.

A bad weekend of wheelin', is still a good weekend.

Wow, right outside of Rocky Mountain National Park.

Congratulations man, that's really top shelf. Do your best to make these kids become something of value, and not another lawyer.

Good job dude.

Congratulations. I'll have a new neighbor for a little while. I just checked my topo map and that would only be a 40 mile commute, if you can find a flock of willing Crows. Not even any 4-wheeling short cuts, now that there is a closed tunnel near Rollins Pass.
