    How to Keep up with Mr. A's Science Classes:

    Students will keep a folder with a daily agenda.  This folder is also where homework assignments and paper communications from me will go.

    Optionally, you may sign up with my science classes on Remind.

    I will occassionally send reminders about upcoming projects and tests, but I promise not to overwhelm you!

    About Me

    This is my 14th year teaching, and my third year in Georgetown.  I am married to my beautiful wife of 19 years, Michele, and we have three children: Tristan, a sophomore at GHS; Logan, an 8th grader at Forbes; and Amerlyn, a 5th grader at Cooper.  We absolutely love the Georgetown community and look forward to many more years growing, learning, and teaching here!
