Teacher Tuesday

Teacher Tuesday: May 16, 2018


As this week’s #TeacherTuesday, Jim Muscarella was featured this morning on FOX 29 Good Day Philadelphia.

This amazing physics and engineering teacher from Plymouth Whitemarsh High School in the Colonial School District has spent the past decade creating an elective engineering course.

It has grown from one elective to an exciting three-course sequence for students in grades nine through 12. Each year, about 100 students take one or more of the three project-based courses focusing on engineering design, engineering analysis, technical communication, prototype development and project management.

Jim believes that, “Education is about creating an environment where students can both discover and pursue their passions.” And he adds, “Engineering education is problem solving at its core. Students learn that engineering is the creative application of mathematics and science in pursuit of the best solution to a problem.”

We’re proud of the opportunities that teachers like Jim create for their students. Let us know what other educators bring their passion to work each day, and we’ll feature them in an upcoming #TeacherTuesday.
