Hi my name is Jason Hemmerling. I've been teaching at Westfield since 1998. I am a teacher in the Engineering & Technology Education Department. I teach Civil Engineering & Architecture, Introduction to Construction, and Construction Trades.
I am very passionate about talking careers with students. I feel a responsibility to introduce as many careers as possible in the Construction Industry. There are multiple avenues students can take in pursuing their career. Some students will chose 4-year college, some will pursue 2-year degrees, others will start a career through apprenticeships. All these careers are so valuable and have a lot of meaning to them. I want to show those students the endless possibilities.
We have recently partnered with the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis (BAGI) and IvyTech. Students are able to earn credits by taking most of the courses I teach. BAGI is tremendously helping us out in many ways to provide valuable opportunities both in the classroom and outside the classroom as well.
Many of the presentations and assignments students have in class can be accessed through Canvas. Here is the link to Canvas. While taking one of my courses, your son or daughter has access to this website.https://wws.instructure.com/login/ldap
