Mr. Lesmeister, Physics
I am Mark Lesmeister. I have been teaching physics at both the high school and college levels for 18 years. I am a former Region IV Teacher of the Year. At other times in my life, I have been an at-home dad, Marine Corps intelligence officer, and physics graduate student. I have two children, both of whom graduated from Dawson High School. I have a YouTube channel where I post videos about physics and a variety of other topics.
