I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you as one of the teachers at St Joseph School. My name is Mr. Stringham and I will be teaching Regents Earth Science. I grew up in Genesee County, where I attended and graduated from Pembroke High School in 2004. I am a graduate of the University at Buffalo, where I received a bachelor’s degree in Geology as well as my initial teacher certification and master’s degree in Earth Science Education.
While attending UB, I was a member of the University’s Thunder of the East Marching Band, where I played the contrabass. I enjoy watching and participating in a number of sports including softball, football, basketball and cycling. I am a huge fan of the Denver Broncos, and also enjoy watching the Los Angeles Lakers and Detroit Tigers. Aviation, which has many connections to Earth science, has long been an interest of mine, and as a private pilot I enjoy spending some of my free time flying.
Prior to being hired here, I worked as an earth science teacher at Attica High School for two years, before being let go for budgetary reasons. In addition to this teaching experience, I spent a summer working for the National Park Service at Jewel Cave National Monument in Custer, South Dakota. I served as a park guide and led educational tours of the world’s second longest known cave (over 170 miles)! While serving there I had a number of opportunities to explore the cave systems and even discover an unknown cave passage which I named “The Shake –n- Bake”. This is just one of the unique experiences I have had which I look forward to sharing with all of you.
I hope that all students can find something in earth science that truly interests them, whether it is volcanoes, wild weather, mountains, rocks, planetary motions or caves. I am very passionate about the subject that I teach, and I am hopeful that it will be passed onto all those in class. I am very excited about the upcoming school year and hope to work closely with all of you in an effort to provide the best possible education. My goal is to make earth science a class that you will look forward to attending each and every day. Earth science is a subject that entails a number of disciplines, all of which have importance in our everyday lives. Each student will be given the opportunity to find a personal connection to Earth science just as I have. I encourage active involvement in this class and if at any time you have any questions, comments, concerns or suggestions, please feel free to contact me! This year is going to rock!
