Ms. Sarah Gagermeier
My name is Sarah Gagermeier. I teach AP Physics Mechanics C, Honors Physics and Physics at Queen Anne County High School. I attended Penn State University and aquired a degree in Secondary Education with a specialty in Physics and a Minor in Mathematics. I also have my AP training certificate, am CPR certified and First Aid Certified. I am currently earning my Masters Degree from UMBC with a concentration in Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics Education. In addition to teaching at QACHS, I also am a professor at Washington College and teach an Astrophysics course during the Fall Semester.
In addition to teaching, I am also the co-adiviser to the Queen Anne's County Chapter of the National Honor Society.
Physics is the study of the physical world. We cover many topics such as motion, collisions, gravity, waves, energy, information transfer, engineering, power, circuits and even how the planets move and the laws that govern them! In my classes I like to focus on not only the content, but the application of that content. I believe it is important for students to understand why they are learning something. We discuss many different applications and jobs that physics applies to in every unit, and do labs to investigate concepts further.
