Stephen J Buchner
I was born and raised in New Jersey. Attended college in Pennsylvania and Vermont. After working in finance for almost 10 years in New York City, I decided to resign and attend trade school. I went to Palm Beach State College in South Florida to become a certified welder. After welding school, I was hired by a company that built and maintained ships for the Navy, Ingalls Shipbuilding. I spent 5 years as a first-class journeyman level welder. I was x-ray certified on many types of metal in all welding positions. The last year and a half there, I was a welding foreman. I am excited to be entering my first year as a welding teacher here at Sentinel High School.
