Karlheinz Haas teaches all things physics in the Upper School, including AP Physics 1 & 2, and when called upon, even the occasional AP Statistics and STEM courses. Karlheinz came to the United States quite a few years ago and spent most of his educational career in New Jersey, first as a classroom teacher and then in his role as district level administrator as Director of Curriculum and Instruction and finally Assistant Superintendent of Schools. Prior to joining the staff and faculty of The Pine School, he was employed by the St. Lucie County School District as their Director of Curriculum and as an instructor at the Marine Oceanographic Academy, a science magnet program affiliated with FAU/Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute in Ft. Pierce. He is most proud of the successful Pine School InvenTeam project, sponsored through a grant from the Lemelson-MIT Program.
Fun Fact: Karlheinz also works as an independent consultant for Texas Instruments, conducting teacher workshops around the country.
