Welcome to General Trades!
Hi! My name is Ward Boudreau and I am glad to hear of your interest in General Trades! Here is a little about me. I have many interests. I am a motorcycle builder, a painter, a designer, a builder and I have run over 20 marathons with my twin brother Wade, who also works at region 10. I have been gearing up to teach this class for over 40 years. I‘ve had so many great role models and teachers where I’ve learned so much more than just skills.. These teachers were kind, funny, smart and taught me a lot about how to become the person I wanted to be. These same lessons I learned are what I want to give back to the students here at Tech 10.
Yes, we make great french fries and pizzas while we learn retail skills because we run the Dirigo Diner, the student cafe. Yes, we can detail cars and make them look good as new. Yes, we also learn basic construction skills and build many things over the course of the year. Here in General Trades we pursue a myriad of interests. Every day is new and different.
I hope you consider joining us next year. If you have any questions about our program, please feel free to reach out to me!
