Meet the Instructor
My name is Shawn Fitzpatrick; I am the instructor for the Auto Body and Collision Repair program at Sno-Isle TECH. I have been in the Auto Body industry for over 30 years. In 2009 I decided to change direction and went to work for Boeing painting airplanes; but the crash in the economy made that career choice short lived. I wanted to share my many years of experience and decided teaching Auto Body would be the next chapter of my life. I joined the staff at Sno-Isle TECH in 2010. Teaching the profession which has been my lifelong career was meant to be! If you have a passion for cars and the challenge of making the broken new again, come and join this program!
