Mr. Edward Netherland

I have been teaching for 20 years in private and public schools. I started out working in dealerships and owned a repair shop for 12 years. 

When I was young, I knew I wanted to work on cars and worked in a gas station before going to college, getting a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Arts. I taught for seven years before going into the automotive industry and finally going full circle, teaching for Ford Motor Company, than Morris Country School of Technology.
