Diesel Instructor Shares Best Practices With Staff

Mr. Matthew, Diesel instructor, shares two of his best practices with the staff. He records videos of himself doing work in the field, then edits them for either instructional purposes or simply for entertainment, so students can see the real-world experience of their field and see the strong work ethic Mr. Matthew demonstrates. He will either use them to instruct a technique or show as they enter class set to music. He also shared how he gives students five “sick days” to use during the school year, similar to a work experience. This helps students learn to manage their attendance better and become more accountable for their time “off.”
