Mr. Lesmeister, Physics

I am Mark Lesmeister.  I have been teaching physics at both the high school and college levels for 20 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.  This year, I am only teaching part-time, in the afternoon.
