Faculty & Staff

photo (6)The Academy of Earth and Space (PANTHER) faculty are highly credentialed New Jersey  certified educators who come from diverse backgrounds and experiences and are passionate about engaging our students in the best education possible with the common goal of relentless pursuit of high school graduation and entrance to a college of our student’s choice. As a result, our faculty continually strive to improve their content knowledge and pedagogical practice by modeling life long learning for our students through participation in and facilitation of professional development activities throughout their career.

Each Monday afternoon, Academy of Earth and Space Science students are dismissed one period early so that ALL teachers can come together for collaborative planning, participate in teacher-driven professional development and  analyze student data to engage in purposeful intervention and support meetings.
