Hello, I am Jeff Short and I am the Wood Manufacturing Instructor at Monroe County Area Technology Center.  I have been teaching here since 2002 and have a Career and Technical Education degree from Western Kentucky University.  I am also certified through the Woodwork Career Alliance of North America and have work experience that dates back to my teenage years.  In all, I have over 30 years of experience in wood working including owning and operating a cabinet shop for over 13 years that specializes in custom cabinetry, stair treads, risers, balusters, fire place mantels, bathroom vanities, and trim work (standard and custom).

 

I offer courses that align with the Cabinet Maker and Furniture Maker Career Pathways.  Those courses include Wood Product Manufacturing, Technical Drawing & Blueprint Reading, Wood Finishing, Furniture Technology, Cabinet Making Technology, and Advanced Wood Processing.  I offer the Woodwork Career Alliance (WCA) certification to students who complete a pathway and demonstrate the competencies required.

 

I am a Co-Sponsor for the Skills USA CTSO.  I also serve as the Head Coach for the Monroe County Falcon Anglers’ Fishing Team and am a member of the FLW Outdoors Fishing League.  Other interests include fishing the BFL (Walmart:  Bass Fishing League), boating year round, hunting, and spending time with my family and friends.

 

When I think of my favorite part of my job, a quote comes to mind, “Two roads diverged in the woods and I took the one less traveled” …and that has made all the difference  for me.  I love inspiring kids to think and use their hands.  I love the look on a kid’s face when they get it right.  I also love the fact that I am handing down a trade that was handed down to me from someone else.
