Thomas J. Ehrensperger (Tom)

Woodward Academy

I’m a lifelong (since age 6) “science nut” (astronomy and meteorology being “first loves”) who ended getting a B.S. in Physics from Georgia Tech (1982) and sticking around for an M.S. in Physics in 1984.  My concentration was in optics, and I might have gone on with more education or a research job, but decided to try teaching high school.  I taught one year of public school, and then was fortunate to be offered a job at my own high school alma mater, Woodward Academy in College Park Georgia, in 1985.  I’m still there, teaching physics, AP Physics C, astronomy, and meteorology.  I still love it, as I basically get paid to share my hobbies with lots of people!
