All-girls shop class in Montevideo, Minn., offers lessons that can last a lifetime
from West Central Tribune
Brian Albers teaches an all-girls shop class at the Montevideo High School, and every year it's the same thing. It fills up with seniors who signed up with the intent to learn how to change a flat tire, do some welding, repair home plumbing and wiring, and work with wood and metal. And every year, they acquire along with those skills two things far more important: Independence and confidence. "You learn to have faith in yourself," said Kelsey Quigley as she doused in a bucket of water a red-hot piece of metal she had just welded.
