Mr. Gregory Dorsey

 

Year Appointed: 2014
University of Virginia, Physics, Astronomy minor – B.A.
University of Virginia, Physics – M.T. Secondary Education

 

Mr. Dorsey originally sought a career as a research scientist, but fell in love with teaching while conducting astronomy outreach with a group called Dark Skies Bright Kids. “In time, education and student enrichment became my life, so I switched my career path,” says Mr. Dorsey. He now assists with technology and teaches college-level physics to CBGS students (although he still gives an amazing constellation tour!).

Mr. Dorsey focuses on challenging all students to reach their fullest potential: supporting those who struggle with physics concepts, while offering enrichment opportunities to others looking to delve deeper into the material. “Physics knowledge assists you with rationally coming upon the following situations: key world issues, many political standpoints, environmental concerns, commercial products/advertisements, [and] power cost/pay back,” he says.

As an avid chess player, Mr. Dorsey hopes to create a competitive chess team at CBGS and take them to states and eventually national tournaments. In his spare time, Mr. Dorsey is also a competitive racquetball player.
