Frederick Warren graduated from Drake University Magna Cum Laude, with University Honors, earning two degrees: a BS in Environmental Sciences and a BSE in Secondary Education. He describes himself as “an enthusiastic science teacher.” He has taught Physical Systems in the high school setting and pioneered the 8th grade science here at GCAA. He is excited to be back in the high school setting teaching Physical Science and Physics to our freshman. Over the summer he taught ecology in the New Mexico Rocky Mountains, a college course on sub-cultures and their role in mainstream culture, as well as assisting in teaching a technology course for college students. He teaches 9th Grade Science (and the visual art elective) in the summer with the AIM High summer program. Some of his proudest accomplishments at GCAA include starting the School Garden next door with his 8th grade class, forming the rocketry club, and mentoring the girls robotics club to a strong finish in the Jr. First Lego League their first year. He is looking forward to bringing Physics to all the 9th grade students this year in Physical Science or the Physics First class, continuing the Rocketry Club, and starting an Environmental Club. He is most excited to be returning to the GCAA family of faculty, students, and parents. More than any other, GCAA is the school he has been most excited to be a part of in his long line of experiences.
