Whitehall Middle and High Schools
Whitehall 6-12 is seeking an industrial technology or agriculture education teacher, starting the 2022-23 school year. Our schools and community are very supportive of career and technical education programs. We have 5500 sq./ft shop dedicated to our industrial technology program.

The welding shop is equipped with 4 welding booths, SMAW/MIG welders, a CNC plasma table, sheet metal equipment, and also has two gas forges. There is also equipment for mechanical work and small engines. This program is strongly supported and will continue to evolve to support relevant instruction and 21st century learning.

Adding an FFA (ag teacher) or Skills USA program (industrial/tech teacher) is a priority, which would provide additional stipend beyond the teaching salary to the teacher for running such a program.
