• Welcome to Welding Technology
    Welcome to Welding Technology I and II. I am excited about the GREAT start we have had to the year and look forward to training the students in the welding trades and also giving them helpful tools to excel in life.
  • Meet the Teacher
    Hi! I'm Raymond Goss (He/Him), I am married to Jennifer Goss (who teaches Early Childhood Development her at A. K. Smith) I have a step-son named Max and a daughter named Grace. I am a graduate of Portage High School, where like the students in my class I went through the welding technology vocational class earning dual credit through Ivy Tech. Shortly after high school I joined the Army as an infantryman serving a 14 month tour to Iraq and then reclassifying to Aviation Structural Repairs, where I again deployed this time for 12 months to Afghanistan. After 7 and a half years of service I was medically retired. Upon returning to the local region I began work for a year in the Local 20 Sheet Metal Workers Union before getting offered the position I now hold here at A.K. Smith.
