  1. This is a great idea. When I was in school there were two reasons I stayed after, before I got to a school with a shop (and a teacher willing to stay after with me) it was detention. After I found Mr Shram (best teacher I ever had) who saw something in me and fostered what he saw I stayed out of trouble because the detention cut out of my shop time. Mr Dougherty keep up the good work, and thank you for all you do.
