Want to know more about the man behind this blog? Here are the basics: my name is James. I’m a single high school shop teacher and I’ve been doing that for about five years. I enjoy working with my hands and teaching kids how to make things for themselves. I think it is a great way to teach kids confidence and self-reliance. On the weekend, I volunteer at a youth outreach program. I play sports with the kids and sometimes we’ll build birdhouses or clean up a park. It has been a great experience and something that I wanted to blog about.
