Welcome to my classroom and my 23rd year here at State College High School.
Mr. Troy Alesi
Classes I am teaching in 2015-16:

I am fortunate to have received the Technology & Engineering Education Association of Pennsylvania (TEEAP) High School Teacher of the Year Award, and a Teacher Excellence Award, from the International Technology Engineering Education Association (ITEEA) 2013-14.
I have been a Technology Education/STEM teacher, at the State College Area High School, since September 1993. I am graduate of Millersville University (Magna Cum Laude), with a Bachelor of Science degree in Technology Education. My wife and I have a daughter, who will is currently a sophomore, at State High, and is in my Advanced Computer Graphics class. Over the years I have been involved with teaching courses for the Community Education program, middle school summer camps, PDE graduate classes, for teachers, through the Local IU No.10, and I am a ASM Master Teacher. These classes have been in the areas of visual communications, STEM, and multimedia. At State High, I have taught Drafting and Design, Applied Materials, Video/Film Technology, and I am currently the primary Computer Engineering Graphics and Design Teacher.
What I did last summer:
Spent time with my family.
I helped plan the first ever Maker Fair in State College, PA, held at Schlow Library and surrounding business locations August 24-29.
I taught a "Maker" class for teachers here at Mount Nittany Middle School.
I co-taught, with Mr. Ron Shealer, the first ever ASM Additive Manufacturing Class at Carnegie Mellon University and Penn State University.
We then went on to teach this camp at a very well equipped Community College in Cleveland, OH (Tri-C)
