If America is to remain the world's chief innovator, a focus on science is crucial. PMHS science classes prepare students with both basic understanding and the ability to enter into post-secondary education prepared.
I have been teaching chemistry at Prospect Mountain High School for over 3 years. In my collective twenty years of teaching, I have also taught at Bow High School and Oyster River High School, both in NH. At Prospect Mountain I teach a variety of levels of chemistry including college prep, honors, and AP. I earned a Master of Arts in Teaching Secondary Science degree at the University of New Hampshire. I enjoy spending time with my seven year old son, reading, and running.
I have been teaching for 12 years at Prospect Mountain High School. I currently teach Honors Physics, How Stuff Works, and Engineering Design. I am the lead programming mentor for US First Robotics Team 319 as well as the advisor for The Outing Club. I earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of New Hampshire and an M.Ed. from Plymouth State University. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, hiking, ice hockey, disc golf, sci-fi and history reading, listening to various types of music and not sweating the small stuff.
I have been teaching High School Science for a total of nine years, with the last six at Prospect Mountain High School teaching Physical Science, Chemistry and Biology. Previously, I taught at John Stark Regional High School. I received my undergraduate degree at Plymouth State University and am currently enrolled in a Master’s of Teaching program at Miami University with an anticipated graduation date of December 2018. I live in Sanbornton NH with my two dogs and enjoy skiing, hiking, swimming, yoga, dancing, and all the wonderful things the White Mountains has to offer.
I am currently in my third year teaching science at Prospect Mountain High School and started my teaching career six years ago. I teach 9th grade physical science - both college prep. and basic levels - and one section of college prep physics. I earned a Master of Teaching degree from the University of Vermont in 2011 and became a teacher immediately after. I live in Wolfeboro with my dog Bexley and enjoy spending my time cooking, hiking and doing home science experiments.
My name is Ms. Smith and this is my 5th year teaching science at Prospect Mountain High School and 6th year as a classroom teacher. I currently teach biology and forensics but in the past have also taught physical science. I graduated from UNH with a Bachelor's in Biology and from Franklin Pierce with a Master in Education degree. Before coming to Prospect I taught science at an outdoor school in California, worked at Oyster River High School as a paraprofessional, and taught 7th and 8th grade science at the Paul School. My favorite activities outside of school are travelling and going hiking with my husband and border collie.
I have been teaching high school life sciences for 19 years, 12 of which have been at Prospect Mountain High School. I teach all levels of biology, as well as, forensics, emergency response and bioethics. I attended Paul Smith's College and graduated from the University of New England in 1993 with a dual Bachelors of Science degree in Biology and Environmental Science. In 2007, I received a M.Ed. from Franklin Pierce University. I have served as a class adviser and Fire and EMS Explorer adviser and I am currently the science department's Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Leader and the local NEA president. I am married and have two young adult children. My hobbies include cooking, reading, cycling and camping.
My name is Sarah Thorne and I have been teaching at Prospect Mountain High School since it opened in 2004. I enjoy teaching Biology, Honors Anatomy and Physiology, Field Ecology, and Climate Science. I wrote the curriculum and field investigations for the ecology and climate courses and love exploring these subjects with students. I also advise the Environmental Club at PMHS. I have a BA from Williams College in Environmental Studies and Political Science and an MS from Dartmouth College in Resource Systems and Policy Design. Prior to my teaching career, I worked for 20 years as a land conservation professional. My background includes working for non-profit land trusts and helping landowners, towns, and state agencies conserve special lands for trails, habitat, farming, water supply protection, and sustainable forest management. I am an avid hiker, gardener, and reader and just completed my ascent of the “4000 footers” in the White Mountains. I also volunteer for local land conservation groups in the Lakes Region. I live with my husband on a small farm where we grow much of our food and cut our own firewood and I have two grown children that live in Vermont.
