Physical Science is an introduction to both chemistry and physics. Major course topics include: Scientific Methods, States of Matter, Classification of Matter, Periodic Table of Elements, Laws of Motion, Energy, Work, Simple Machines, Waves, Sound, Light, and Electricity. But here at NAHS I have taught Earth and Space, Environmental Science, Oceanography, Online courses, etc. Before high school teaching, I was in the U.S. Air Force for nearly 5 years before earning my Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education (Kutztown) followed by Master's degrees (Wilkes) in both Instructional Technology and Online Teaching. I've done some traveling, but in the future I hope to do MUCH more of it. If you ever need help or have a question, don't hesitate to ask. I've also served as Guitar Club and Science Olympiad club advisor if interested.
