Degrees and Certifications:
Hi there! I’m Kelly Sample, teacher for the Collision Repair Technology program. You could say that the auto/collision industry runs in my family. Besides teaching experience at New Market, Elma HS and West Sound Tech, I also worked in the auto collision repair industry for many years……don’t ask how many. My goal is to prepare students to work in the field. Some of the skills my students learn are: MIG welding, plastic repair, metal repair, water-based clearcoat refinishing, computerized frame measurement, and computerized estimating systems. We utilize I-CAR curriculum and students have the opportunity to earn I-CAR Professional Development Program Pro-level 1, S/P2 and 3M certifications. Think outside the box because careers go beyond refinishing, welding or sheet metal technician. Think the marine industry or the aerospace industry. Come check out our program!
My hobbies are still fishing, fishing and fishing.
