A Little about me……

Hello and welcome. My name is Dr. Thomas J. Paskett. I have a Ph.D. in Education with an emphasis in Adult Organization and Learning from the University of Idaho. I also have a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix. I hold a Bachelor Degree in Architectural Studies from the University of Utah. My drafting experience began with my Associate Degree in Architectural Drafting Technology from Ricks College, now Brigham Young University-Idaho.

I have been designing residential buildings since 1992 and have had home plans built for the Salt Lake County Parade of Homes. It is my intent to teach you the skills needed to be a residential designer and begin a career in residential architecture. The skills you gain from the courses in the Drafting Program are transferable to almost every profession and can be a source of income for you as you continue your education.

I have taught drafting on the college level for ten years and I will be conducting my courses on the High School level with the same expectations and rigor. We will learn together how to find passion and build efficacy towards the drafting profession. We will work hard and play hard.

I currently teach Design Engineering courses at Fremont. I also teach Driver Education for Fremont High, as well as mathematics and interior design courses for BYUI, architecture courses for Weber State University, and graduate level courses in Business and Education for Argosy University. I am a board member of the Idaho Life-long Learning Association in my spare time.

I know that we will have a great year together.
