Description:

For the 2007-08 school year, the author took a sabbatical and became a full time high school physics teacher in a public high school in New York City after participating in an alternative teacher certification program. As a college professor teaching teacher education courses and standard introductory undergraduate physics courses, both populated by many New York City public school graduates, the author found the experience illuminating, and a little scary. The respect and admiration that he already had for many wonderful science teachers throughout the city grew even more.
