    Courses I teach:
     
    Geometry
       
    Intro to Drafting and Design
    Introduction to Drafting and Design is the foundational course for the Architectural Drafting and Design pathway. Emphasis is placed on safety, geometric construction, fundamentals of computer-aided drafting, and multi-view drawings. Students learn drafting techniques through the study of geometric construction at which time they are introduced to computer-aided drafting and design. The standards are aligned with the national standards of the American Design Drafting Association (ADDA).
     
     
     
    Architectural Drawing and Design I
    Architectural Drawing and Design I is the second course in the Architectural Drawing and Design pathway and introduces students to the basic terminology, concepts, and principles of architectural design. Emphasis is placed on house designs, floor plans, roof designs, elevations (interior and exterior), schedules, and foundations. The standards are aligned with the drafting and design standards in Georgia’s technical colleges, thus helping students qualify for advanced placement to continue their education at the postsecondary level.  Competencies for the co-curricular student organization, SkillsUSA, are integral components of both the core employability skills 
    standards and the technical skills standards. The prerequisite for the course is Introduction to Drafting and Design.
     
    Architectural Drawing and Design II
    Architectural Drawing and Design II is the third course in the Architectural Drawing and Design pathway and builds on the skills developed in Architectural Drawing and Design I. Emphasis is placed on the design process, site plans, electrical plans, plumbing plans, sections and details, project presentations, and a course portfolio. The standards are aligned with the drafting and design standards in Georgia’s technical colleges, thus helping students qualify for advanced placement should they continue their education at the postsecondary level. Students who successfully complete this and other drafting courses should be prepared to take an End of Pathway Assessment. Competencies for the co-curricular student organization, SkillsUSA, are integral components of both the core employability skills standards and the technical skills standards. The prerequisite for this course is Introduction to Drafting and Design and Architectural Drawing and Design I.
