Dave Shinnlinger, the wood shop teacher at Mascoma Valley Regional High School, explains the drainage system being installed in front of the school while showing his building construction class around the construction site for the school expansion at Mascoma Valley Regional High School in West Canaan, N.H., on May 28, 2015. Shinnlinger says he's taken groups of students to watch the construction since it began in April, as it's a great teaching opportunity. "It's great to take the students on a field trip without getting on a bus," Shinnlinger said.
