Teachers - High School - Woods, Construction, Mechanics
My name is Francis Achus-Got. I was born in Nigeria and immigrated to Canada in 1978 on student visa. I stated my education in Algonquin College of Applied Arts and Technology, in Ottawa studying Civil Engineering. After two years of a three year program, I transferred to Red River Community College, Winnipeg where I obtained a diploma in Structural Engineering (1982) and a diploma in Building Engineering (1983); and B/Ed (1984), M/Ed (1986), and Post Baccalaureate Diploma in Special Education (1994) at University of Manitoba; and a Diploma of Education in Career Technology Studies at University of Alberta/NAIT, in 2000.
I have been with Westwood Community High School since August 2005 where I taught woodwork, small engine mechanic, Math 10C, 10-3, 20-2, 20-3 and grade 9 sheet metalwork. In June 2018, I was transfer to Ecole McTavish to implement the Construction and Fabrication Tech. courses. I am persuaded it will be rewarding experience.
For extra-curricular activities, I have coached JV basketball and organized table tennis club in
Westwood Community High School.
