Freshman Academy Physics

Hey all: I'm Bill Olson and I teach 9th Grade Physics at Shakopee High School. Though new to teaching, I come with 25 years experience as a meteorologist, physicist, and a program manager for a joint U.S. Air Force and NASA project to map the Earth's radiation belts from space. I was a government expert on inter-planetry and near-earth physics and served on three national space environment policy boards. I taught at the Tokata Learning Center and at West Junior High School. I married my college sweetheart in 1985 and we have enjoyed 34 years together. My personal interests include: classical Greco-Roman history, spacecraft propulsion and navigation, hiking, biking, camping, ... and good food.
