Hello My Name Is...
Welcome to Mrs. Shirey's Physics classes where PHysics is PHun! As a teacher for over 8 years, I am truly passionate about teaching physics and making it applicable and enjoyable for all students.
My training to become a teacher consisted of an Undergraduate Degree in Physics and Education from Juniata College and a Master's Degree in Education from Saint Francis University. While obtaining my Master's, I taught Physics and Physical Science for five years at Huntingdon High School in Huntingdon, PA. From there, I taught Electronics at Pittsburgh Technical Institute for two years. This will be my second year at South Park High School and I am looking forward to MANY more!
I put forth a lot of energy into activities, labs, projects and problems that make your time in physics worthwhile; my expectation is that you put in just as much time and energy into your work and do your best every day in class.
I am looking forward to a fun-filled year of teaching Physics, AP Physics and Integrated Science. Come ready to work diligently and learn every day and we will have a great year!
