Hands on Technology(Shop Tech)

Hello,Mr. Tvedt


My name is Mr. Tvedt and I love teaching at Glacier View and being an Avalanche.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota and received my Masters in Teaching Degree from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona. I have been teaching CTE (Career and Tech Ed) classes here at Glacier View since it opened in 2008.
My classroom is in the shop and we do a variety of hands on technology activities and projects
in my classes. I believe it’s important for kids to get their hands on to get a full experience
in the learning process. There are a number of amazing pieces of equipment in my classroom, including a laser engraver, sand blasters, 3d printers, CNC machine, virtual welders, printers, a variety of different saws, routers, heat cutter, machines to work with plastics, along with many other smaller tools.

If you have any questions please reach out to me at tvedtjp@puyallup.k12.wa.us
