| Welcome to Automotive Technology at Wando! My name is Andy Streets and I
am excited to be here to instruct and assist students in gaining the
knowledge and skills required to become successful in the modern
automotive industry. I am a native Charlestonian who earned an
Entrepreneurship degree from Winthrop University, as well as a Masters
level teaching license from the South Carolina Department of Education.
After graduating from college I worked for several years at a few
automotive based mechanic/machine shops and devoted myself to mastering
the art of automotive diagnosis and repair.
| In 2002 I opened a business specializing in engine machining, drag racing, and hot-rod restoration. In 2005 I began teaching Automotive Technology courses as an instructor at Trident Technical College. Over the years I have had the remarkable pleasure of witnessing many of my students flourish within the industry. As the automotive instructor at Wando, I will incorporate challenging classroom curriculum with hands-on laboratory opportunities that utilize state of the art tools, technology, and equipment. Within this program, I will introduce students to the skills necessary to ensure successful development as well as provide students with post secondary options and industry connections.
