Teachers look forward to their students getting excited about developing their skills and finding new interests. Senior Allie Dalluge started her woodworking career in 9th grade making a nightstand.

I had never been in a shop before and had little to no knowledge of the tools being used, so I remember, during every cut, thinking “don’t cut off your finger, don’t cut off your finger.” As I calmed down, I just remember having fun. I never thought when I started woodworking that I was going to enjoy it, but it has been some of the most enjoyable times during high school.”
