Meet the Teacher

Jason Lender

I love working with high school students and I enjoy teaching at a place like NCTA where students want to come and learn real job skills in a hands-on environment. My interest in manufacturing began as a child with Legos, remote-controlled cars, and airplane modeling. Growing up on a farm taught me the work ethic and problem-solving skills that now get passed down to my students. Aerospace Manufacturing gives students the skills to transition from student to professional in a manufacturing environment. Along with technical skills, soft skills training (employability) is fundamental.
