George Stahl started in 2006 as the Eastern Center for Arts and Technology’s (EASTERN) Instructional Aide in Automotive Technology, working with Automotive Technology instructor, John McDonald. During the 2014-2015 school year, George Stahl became the long-term substitute Automotive Technology instructor at EASTERN. He is also the Automotive and Collision Repair Summer Fun teacher.
As EASTERN’s long-term substitute Automotive Technology instructor, Stahl is looking forward to teaching returning and new students. He plans to rework the curriculum to make it more technologybased.
Stahl has a great deal of experience in the field. He has been an ASE Master Technician for 26 years and worked at Reed Chevrolet in Langhorne. Stahl has an Associate’s Degree from Bucks County Community College and hopes to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. His past has brought him here today. Education has played a huge role in his life. He was an instructor and training officer in fire services for over thirty-three years. He enjoys teaching and has always wanted to end up in classroom providing hands-on experience. Stahl says, “I love when a student picks it up and goes forward with it. I
love seeing the kids participate and learn.”
Automotive Technology at EASTERN is designed for students who are serious about working in the automotive industry. The curriculum, facility and instructor are National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certified Partners with the Automotive Youth Educational Systems Program (A-YES) to provide qualified juniors with experiences at participating dealerships and paid summer internships.
