Dennis Offers Support to His Students Beyond the Classroom

For some students, school is an escape from the harsh realities they face at home. Dennis Carrier understands that. Dennis has been the welding teacher at Berlin High School in Berlin, NH for 14 years. Through his class, Dennis not only provides his students with the skills they need to be successful welders, but he also provides them with a safe and supportive environment where they are offered the guidance they need to overcome certain obstacles outside of the classroom.

With 28 years of experience in welding and fabrication prior to teaching, Dennis brings his students a great deal of knowledge of the industry. He also sought out to become a certified OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) trainer to ensure that his students would graduate with the proper certifications needed to be successful. Through Dennis’s class, students are also able to participate in SkillsUSA, a career and technical student organization through which students compete in state welding competitions with the first-place student moving on to the national competition. In recent years, Dennis has had several students advance to the national competition.

In addition to supporting students in their welding curriculum, Dennis also genuinely cares about his students’ well-being. He never hesitates to offer his time to students in need, often using his lunch hour to provide guidance to students with problems ranging from addiction to abuse and poverty. He provides these students with the support they need to overcome their struggles and remains a confidant for them even after graduation.

Because of his dedication to his students, Dennis was chosen as a winner of Northeast Credit Union’s Teachers that Wow contest. We support his kindness towards his students!
