Woodworking & Carpentry

My name is Dave Connell and I am the Woodworking & Carpentry teacher here at Highwood High School. I started wood carving as a hobby in my early teens - soon after realizing becoming a teacher would be my future choice career.  I have been teaching Woodworking for over 25 years, still enjoy it to this day.  My learning continues as I push the limits of my knowledge and ability, always seeking ways to create and innovate using wood products.  


I value time with my family - camping, walking my dogs, and hikes in the mountains.
