Media Arts Teacher (he/him)firstname.lastname@example.org
I was raised in the middle of WA state, near Snoqualmie Pass but I’ve lived in Seattle for the past 30 years. I graduated college with a degree in Spanish and went on to build a career as a graphic designer. I run my own graphic design business (reedforrester.com) in addition to teaching. I am dad to a terrific, creative, energetic eight year old kiddo. I started teaching five years ago, and I have really enjoyed developing my teaching muscles and getting to know a bunch of amazing students.

Robideau, Jr., David
Advanced Manufacturing, Aerospace and Maritme Instructorderobideau@seattleschools.org
Initially from Connecticut, I joined the US Navy and came to Seattle, I fell in love with the area ( and my wife ) and stayed here to work in aerospace. I have had the opportunity to work as an aerospace machinist with everyone in the area from Space X to Blue Origin and Boeing, as well as many of their local suppliers. I have also spent time in the shipyards of the PNW and California, building and repairing both commercial and cargo carrying vessels as well as combatant ships for the US Navy. I am happy to be here with the Skills Center to share my experiences with the students and hopefully spark interest in a new generation of tradespeople.
