ROCKLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — A teacher in Rockland is helping to encourage more girls to get into the field of auto body repair, and she is leading by example.

Danica Wooster is an Automotive Collision Technology Instructor at Mid Coast School of Technology. With each class she teaches, she is making the way forward smoother for other girls who care about cars.

Her afternoon class has two teen girls in it, and both agree that learning from Danica makes taking on this trade much less intimidating.
