My name is Mark Corson, and I will be teaching 8th Grade Science and High School Physical Science this year. I was born and raised in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and attended Kent State University, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Conservation. Upon graduating, I wandered to Vermont to work as an outdoor educator and summer trip leader/camp counselor for two years.
After two years of living out of tents and cabins I moved to Burlington, Vermont and was employed as a water chemistry technician, at the Vermont State Health Department Laboratory. While working as a lab technician, I attended North College of Vermont (formerly Johnson State College) where I earned a Masters in Secondary Science Education.
Upon graduating with my teaching degree, I taught high school Earth Science and Environmental Science at Bellows Free Academy in St Albans Vermont. In 2003, I was hired by CCSD as a 6th-12th grade science teacher, at ACE Academy (formerly Crossroads) and relocated to Georgia with my wife, who was raised in the area.
