Hello and welcome!  


    My name is Marc Nelson.  I am the woodworking teacher at Lakeshore High School.  I also teach Tech Exploration, Auto Awareness and Small Engines.   In addition to teaching, I am the co-Career and Technical Education Director.

    It is my desire to teach students the joy and skills of woodworking and to be life long learners.  I have been woodworking from the age of 13 grade and enjoy applying problem solving to my building and designing.  I am posting some of my more recent woodworking projects along with some of my student's work from here at LHS and other schools I have taught at.

    In addition to woodworking, my hobbies and interests include mountain biking, photography, backpacking, horseback riding and learning.  I earned a Bachelor's degree at Andrews University in Technology Education and a Masters degree at Central Michigan University in Industrial Education.  Before coming to Lakeshore High School, I taught middle school technology for four years, high school computer-aided design, machine shop and welding, woodshop and I have been a high school principal for four and a half years.  I am currently working on a PhD in Educational Leadership at Andrews University.
