Noah Whitney –High School Science Teacher
I am the middle school and high school science teacher at AISC. I am energized by creative thinking and curiosity driven exploration. I love seeing the scientific mindset and natural curiosity students have when discussing phenomena or working through a new concept. I believe everyone has a natural curiosity which the practice and study of science nurtures. When honed, the scientific mindset has a rippling effect, often changing how we look at and evaluate the world around us
