Welcome to Automotive Technology. For those of you that do not know me, my name is Randy Bridges and I have been an automotive instructor for 20 years. I am an ASE certified master technician and owned my own automotive business for 7 years. I also have worked in automotive dealerships and independent shops with a total of over 30 years of experience. I am also a long term member of the Lake Rayburn Fire department, certified Texas fire fighter and medical first responder. I have been married for 30 years and live in Brookeland. Once you get to know me, you will find that I love to work. It is important to see my students work and gain the skills they need to succeed. This school year is going to be exciting and productive and I am looking forward to getting to know each one of you.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Greetings as we begin our new school year.  I hope to make it a fun year and a real learning experience for each student.  

There are a few things that I need your help and support with. As you know shop work can be hot and dirty.  Work clothes and shoes are required and must be provided by the student. There are lockers for storing them and the students will be responsible for washing and returning their clothes.  Also, we will be using many different chemicals in our shop and sometimes these may cause allergic reactions. If there is a problem please let me know as soon as possible. We have gloves, aprons, safety glasses and respirators but at times, for some students, there is still a problem.  Safety glasses are required to be worn by all students in the shop area.

I hope to improve the quality of future automotive technicians, inspire some to enter the automotive field and help give all my students a valuable work ethic.  I look forward to teaching your child and wish for your support.



Make-Up and Retake Policies According to District Handbook Policy


Make-Up Work Procedures:

If you are absent it is your responsibility to check Google Classroom’s Agenda and calendar.  Students will not be reminded or prompted to obtain their work and it is the student’s responsibility. According to district policy students have 3 days to turn in make-up work from the last date of absence.


Retake Policy

If a student receives a failing grade on a daily assignment or test, they will be given 3 days to retake or correct from the date of return according to handbook guidelines. Furthermore, that assignment cannot exceed a maximum grade of a 70 according to the handbook. I will prompt students once. It is also at the discretion of the teacher to assign detention to get the work done, even if the grade cannot receive a higher grade than a 0. Despite receiving a 0 the student is still responsible for gaining the knowledge required.

The staff of Brookeland ISD believes that ALL students can learn.  We believe that our school’s purpose is to educate all students to high levels of academic performance while fostering positive growth in social/emotional behaviors and attitudes.  We accept the responsibility to teach all students in a challenging, meaningful way that allows each child to become a literate, contributing adult.  Brookeland ISD is a center for sound learning, academic discovery, and the pursuit of wisdom through advanced course offerings, high academic standards and aggressive, innovative instruction.  The students of Brookeland ISD will excel and compete academically with any students in the country.
