I believe that teachers bear the primary responsibility for ensuring that American youth are prepared to be leaders and movers in a society undergoing titanic social, technological, and environmental changes.”

George’s Story

Teaching Discipline

Chemistry

Why Chemistry

“Chemistry reveals the beauty of the world to anyone who studies it. The origin of color, the intricacies of our bodies’ survival mechanisms, the reactions dictating the synthesis of the world’s best artworks: all of these can be understood more wholly through chemistry.”

Professional Experience

In college, George spent several years working as a overnight peer counselor.

In the summer of 2016, George worked as an undergraduate researcher in the Conor Evans Lab at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine.

George will begin teaching at Codman Academy during the 2018–2019 school year.

Volunteer Experience

George spent several summers volunteering and teaching in China. He helped operate a free, roaming pharmacy and cardiovascular clinic across Yunnan, lived alongside and mentored students at a rural orphanage in Liaoning, and taught a film analysis seminar in Beijing.

Also, George works closely with a program called Chinatown Afterschool run by college students in Boston’s Chinatown. The program provides academic enrichment and social learning support to around 50 students in the area.

Hobbies

George is an avid writer, and casually publishes film criticism and poetry. He also enjoys powerlifting, eating Chinese food, and discovering new movies and music.
