Mr. Lawrence E. Shingler, I

Dear students, parents, and fellow educators,

It is my honor and privilege to introduce myself as Lawrence E. Shingler I, your Electrical Technology Instructor at Lake Marion Technology Center. I am delighted to be a part of this esteemed institution, and I cannot wait to embark on a journey of knowledge, growth, and achievement alongside each one of you.

My passion for electrical work began at an early age, working alongside my father when I was just 7 years old. This hands-on experience ignited my curiosity and fascination for all things related to electricity and electronics. Over the years, I cultivated this passion and channeled it into my education, earning a degree in Electronic Engineering Technology with a specialization in Electronic Instrumentation from Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College.

My professional journey has been a diverse and enriching one. I had the privilege of serving as the Assistant Supervisor of University Maintenance, Electricity, and Emergency Power Generator Mechanic at the Medical University of South Carolina. Additionally, I contributed my expertise as an Electronic PLC Specialist at Georgia Pacific MDF in Holly Hill, SC. As my love for teaching and sharing knowledge grew, I found myself at Lake Marion Technology Center, where I am proudly certified as an NCCER Electrical and Electronic Instructor, NCCER Proctor, and NCCER Construction Instructor.

Beyond the realms of education and technology, music has always held a special place in my heart. As the Music Director at Truth Radio WJBS 96.1 FM and 1440AM in Holly Hill, SC, I have had the incredible opportunity to connect with audiences through the power of music. In fact, my love for music has led me to tour many cities in the USA and Europe, an experience that has enriched my life and broadened my horizons.

As an educator, I firmly believe in the adage, "If I believe it, I will achieve it." With hard work, discipline, and inspiration, I have witnessed firsthand the transformational power of dedication and self-belief. My commitment to excellence and passion for teaching have been recognized by my peers and colleagues, as I was humbled to be voted as the Lake Marion Technology Center Teacher of the Year for the 2022/2023 academic year.

Outside of my professional pursuits, my greatest joy comes from spending time with my family and producing music. The support and love of my family have been the bedrock of my accomplishments, and I aspire to create an environment in our classroom that fosters a sense of belonging and encourages each student to thrive.

In conclusion, I am thrilled to be your instructor for Electrical Technology, and I look forward to inspiring and empowering each one of you to reach your fullest potential. Let us embrace the values of hard work, discipline, and inspiration as we embark on this transformative journey together. I am confident that, with dedication and perseverance, we will achieve great heights and make lasting impacts in the world of electrical technology.

Here's to a successful and fulfilling academic year ahead!
