Meet RHS’s New Teachers (Part 2)
Haley Macray, Veritas Senior Managing Editor
Rockland High School has welcomed quite the group of new faculty members this year. Didn’t get to learn about your teacher in our prior post? In this part of “Meet RHS’s New Teachers” you’ll get to meet Mr. Gregory Connors as well as Mr. Jonathan Robin.
Greg Connors – Transitions Program
“I left [the] first day feeling very hopeful, comfortable, and involved in a tight-knit community.”
Do you have anything exciting planned for your classes this year? I do have some exciting things coming down the road for my classes, but I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag yet.
What is one thing that your students would be interested to know about you? My students should know that I love to travel, meet new people, and create new experiences.
If you could be any superhero who would it be and why? Mighty Mouse… because none of his adversaries ever see him coming.
What are three of your favorite things? I love watching/playing baseball and hockey, as well as long walks with Lou Dogg, my black lab/shepherd mix.
What do you most enjoy to do in your free time? I like to golf, spend time with my nieces and nephews, and complain about Boston Sports teams.
What do you love most about the subject(s) that you teach? Every day is different than the last!
Jonathan Robin – Chemistry & Physics
Is there a certain RHS tradition or event that you’re are most looking forward to this year? I am looking forward to watching the sports teams, finding out what the traditions are, and participating in any faculty vs. student games (maybe soccer if that happens here).
What is one thing that your students would be interested to know about you? I attended the same High School as Stephen Hawking.
Do you have any special talents? I like to be creative in my spare time. Woodworking, gardening and writing are some of the things I enjoy.
If you could be any superhero who would it be and why? Wolverine. Constant cellular regeneration. Superhuman senses. Adamantium skeleton. What else would you need? The ability to fly maybe…
What are three of your favorite things? Dogs, history, and grilling with charcoal.
What do you love most about the subject(s) that you teach? Science is awesome! There is so much amazing stuff we know about and can do. And yet so much more yet to be discovered and figured out. Science is constantly growing and helping us to learn more about ourselves and the universe around us. There are new discoveries being made all of the time and greater and more powerful technologies being developed.
