    Patrick Kaylor earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Building Construction from Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!!!).  He worked in the construction industry for five years before deciding to become a teacher.  He is currently teaching 7th & 8th Grade Technology Education and has been for the last 7 years.  He is also teaching the new Technoloy of Robotic Design class.  Mr. Kaylor has also been involved with robotics through VEX Robotics for the past 6 years, as a coach and mentor. 
     
    "I have enjoyed every minute of my teaching career and the opportunity to inspire others in the same way I was inspired back in middle school years by my teachers. I hope to spread this same love, enjoyment, and curiosity for exploring technology to my students."
