Greetings, This school year marks my 15th year teaching Science in California, and my first year here at Silver Springs. I have had experience teaching Earth Science, Integrated Science, Biology and Chemistry and Video Production. I am credentialed in Geoscience (aka Earth Science), Biology, Chemistry and have a CTE Credential in Media Arts. In addition, I have taught at both continuation and general high school settings.
My goal is to have students be able to see the physical world around them with wider eyes by gaining an understanding of how the things we need and use from Earth were created; what is in the items we buy, food we eat, water we drink and the air we breathe...and how do we interact with them? The goal is to not only learn in class, but to have that spark to be a lifelong learner (because the learning really only begins in the classroom).
In addition to teaching Science, I love to hike, bike and play guitar. In addition, we have a growing Vizsla pup named Ollie who is full of energy and keeps us on our toes at the Dangerfield home.
Sincerely, Mr. Dangerfield Earth and Environmental Science Teacher
