Instructor: Commercial Construction/ Management
Corey Andrew graduated from Warwick High school in 1996 and went to the University of Pittsburgh as an English Education major. Two and one half years later, facing the financial reality of working fulltime to pay for school, disheartened by the public education bureaucracy and general lack of student expectation, Corey transferred back to the Lancaster area and Millersville University. Corey began working full time again for the family’s construction business and going to school part time.
In 2002, Corey opened his own contracting and remodeling company and operated the business fulltime until 2010, working on light commercial and residential projects. In fall of 2009, Corey went to work for Thaddeus Steven College as the Director of Weatherization. Corey operated the PA Weatherization Certification Training Center, where he certified industry professionals in retrofit energy efficiency techniques for construction and HVAC. In 2010, Corey accepted the position of Technical Officer for PA’s Labor and Industry’s Weatherization program, where he helped to set up six Weatherization Training Centers across the state, ensuring technical support and compliance for the laboratories and the instructors at each facility.
In the fall of 2011, tired of the traveling for work and excited to get back into education, Corey accepted the job of Instructor at Lancaster County Career & Technology Center for the Commercial Construction/ Management program. After completing PA’s teacher certification coursework and receiving a Bachelor’s Equivalency from Pennsylvania’s Department of Education, Corey is currently finishing a degree in Workforce Education at Penn State University.
