Bio: Gordon Scales 64, born to a military father and Italian mother. I grew up on US army bases in Europe and Japan. Moved to San Antonio at age 10 when my father retired. B.S Psychology 1976 Lamar University. My first job was as insurance adjuster at USAA. While on vacation in New Zealand I found a 1909 sailing fishing boat and lived on it there for 2 years. Asking myself " what would I want to do even if I didn't have to work" , I discovered my vocation for teaching science. M.S. Biology UTSA 1997. I have been teaching science at Incarnate Word High School for 23 years. I moderate the Media Arts Club with Jennifer Allison. My hobbies are cats, science fiction, and travelling during breaks. My main teaching goal is to awaken a sense of wonder in my students for science; especially physics. I try to accomplish this by using as many different methods as possible.
