With all of the uncertainty regarding the 2020-2021 school year, I can tell you one thing for certain... I will deliver the best possible education to my students.

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the definition of B-R-E-A-K is “an interruption in continuity.” The definition of B-R-A-K-E is “something used to slow down or stop movement or activity”.

What we really need to do over the summer is the complete opposite of braking. We need to accelerate! We need to immerse ourselves into developing who we are. We need to define our purpose and then we need to take steps toward fulfilling that purpose.

Support the US conversion to the metric system.

There are short-term and long-term benefits to showing your work in physics class (as well as many other classes). Appreciating both types of benefits will empower you to take control of your learning now so you can create the future of your dreams.
If we want to create change in this world, we need to start by opening our eyes, educating ourselves, and analyzing one problem at a time. I believe that education is the key to creating change. And I believe that physics plays a critical role.
