The humming of electric wood sanders and the dust they made filled the air of Debra Gampietro’s workshop on a recent morning at the Erie 1 BOCES Potter Career & Technical Center.
Her Occupation Education I (OE1) class was busy working on the final project for their segment on building trades, building wooden stools from scratch.
“The students go five weeks (per session) and we go different places,” said Gampietro, who is in her first year of running the OE1 class. “The first five weeks…they took care of a garden outside. I had them paint pumpkins in their school colors. We weeded the garden and got it ready for spring planting. We also worked with the adult nursing program doing blood pressures and weights. And next week, we start auto.”
