I’m Andres Garcia, and I’ve been a welding instructor for 7+ years. I am currently in my 5th year here at Career Elevation and Technology Center. I teach at Pickens Technical college to post-secondary students in the evenings and am in my 8th year there. My industry experience is in mostly structural and ornamental work on mild steel. I have been lucky enough to have multiple students win district and state welding championships from both schools, and have trained them to compete at a national level. In my free time my hobbies are socializing with friends and spending time with my beautiful boxer dog
