Automotive Technology: Instructor Profiles

Mr. McCarthy

After graduating Salem High School in 2003 I attended Manchester Community College for an associates degree in Automotive Technology.  I made this decision after completing Salem's two year automotive program.  I continued at the community college and successfully completed their business certificate program.  In high school right after receiving my drivers license I started my first job pumping gas at a local gas station.  That position slowly progressed into working in their repair shop, all while attending high school and finally graduating.  I was able to apply the skills learned at Salem Auto Tech, and eventually those learned at Manchester Community College to my full-time career as an automotive technician.  I received my ASE (automotive service excellence) Master Certification shortly after, and maintain that certification today.  Looking for a change I applied for the instructor position at Salem High School and am now going on my  fourth year here at Salem.  I have owned many vehicles over the years, as well as atv's, dirt bikes, snowmobiles, motorcycles and classic cars.  It's safe to say that automotive and powersports will always be part of my life.

Mr. Liebke

I graduated from Salem High School in 2000 and took Automotive Technology in the same shop I now teach in. I went to Manchester Community College where I completed my Associates Degree in Automotive Technology. During that time I also obtained  my Toyota T-Ten Certification and 4 of my ASE certifications. This is my 4th year here at the high school. I have recently obtained my teaching license for the State of NH and love to watch students grow over the two years in our program. I am a certified Motorcycle Rider Coach for the NH Department of Safety and when I'm not here you can find me riding out on the local roads, or on the range teaching a class. Please feel free to email me with any questions!
