Mr. Thornton


I am from Pittsburgh PA, where I studied Technology Education at California University of Pennsylvania.  I am extremely proud to be a member of the faculty at CCHS.  This is my 9th year teaching at Central Cabarrus High School and I am very happy to be a part of the STEM program.  I currently teach Foundations of Tech, Intro to Engineering, and Principles of Engineering.  If you have any questions please feel free to email me at
My Schedule:
1st: Into to Engineering 
2nd: PLAN
3rd: Intro to Engineering 
4th: Intro to Engineering 
Here is a link to my canvas page!
Intro to Engineering and Principals of Engineering are great classes to learn about becoming a future engineer.  We use STEM101 in our classroom, which is an online learning platform, and also build fun hands-on projects in class.
One of the best videos that I have shown to my class about becoming an engineer is found here
