I am pleased to announce the addition of Michael Masterson to the Upper School Science department. A veteran teacher with experience in both independent schools and colleges, Michael will teach physics and AP Computer Science, a course being added for next year. Michael has taught and developed advanced courses in both subject areas in his previous schools. He has also taught math in a variety of settings and brings significant department leadership experience with him as well. He is currently teaching physics at the Hangzhou Foreign Language School, an independent school in China. Michael received his B.A. in mathematics and physics from Michigan State University and went on to complete his M.S. in physics at the University of Chicago. We are very excited to welcome such a diversely talented educator to our community.
