Please Welcome Adam Goetz to USD #489!! I am a new CTE teacher at HMS and HHS this year. I will be teaching woodworking, technical applications, and some shop classes. I am a Hays Native, graduating from Hays High in 2010. I received my bachelor's degree from FHSU in 2014 and have been working in the construction industry ever since. I have a lot of experience with home designing, project management, and estimation of projects. My wife and I have two daughters and we are very excited for this new journey. I am looking forward to giving back to the district that gave me a love for woodworking at such a young age. A random tidbit about me is I love going to the lake and could spend all day on a boat! #EveryStudentEveryDay489
