Self-Paced Curriculum Fits Brooklyn McCall
Putnam City West senior Brooklyn McCall is fond of the CADD curriculum, and is looking forward to architecture school.
Computer Aided Design and Drafting
"Every person might be at a different place, and working on different projects instead of everyone doing the same thing at the same time, just like in a work environment because people have their own skill sets and understand differently.”
Brooklyn McCall has always had an interest in architecture and design. She loves that classes at Francis Tuttle Technology Center are self-paced, which allows her to finish projects faster or to go back over the curriculum to better understand some details.
As she commented, “Every person might be at a different place, and working on different projects instead of everyone doing the same thing at the same time, just like in a work environment because people have their own skill sets and understand differently.”
This Putnam City West senior is well aware that Computer Aided Drafting and Design is a very male dominated industry, but hasn’t let that stop her from pursing it. She believes that she is in a position to lead other women to take on the challenge!
Her plans are to earn a scholarship and attend The University of Oklahoma’s School of Architecture, where she already has friends. Her sister also graduated from OU, so she has been on campus and often considers how Francis Tuttle is similar to a campus environment.
An element she is not fond of is a cookie-cutter approach to architecture, and she hopes to work on many different designs in her career. Something she tells others considering Francis Tuttle is “Go after an area you want to pursue and like to do—there are a lot of options, and most have different pathways.”
Spoken like an observant enthusiast…
