My name is Andy Jackson. I was born and raised in Harrisonburg and just like my parents, graduated from HHS!  I am the director of the HHS Governor's STEM Academy and teach physics in the Technology & Engineering pathway of the Academy. I am also the secondary science coordinator for Harrisonburg City Public Schools.  In addition to my position with HCPS I am a part time faculty member in the physics department at JMU where I teach one lab section each semester.  

I received my degree in physics from JMU and find both the content of the subject area and the art and science of the teaching and learning of it fascinating.

I am very active with regard to science education in the state and nation. I have been president and am an active member of the Virginia Instructors of Physics and the Virginia Association of Science Teachers. I am also a member of Virginia Science Educators Leadership Association, Virginia Association of Curriculum Directors, and the National Association of Science Teachers.  I was one of approximately fifty writers of the Next Generation science Standards which is a state lead effort towards common science standards across the Unites States.
