Hello everyone! My name is Kirby Brubaker. I am the Science Teacher here on the Orange Team.
A little about myself. I have lived in the Northeastern community for more than 20 years. Before buying our house my wife, Kimberly and I were from Hanover, PA. We both graduated from South Western High School. After beginning my undergraduate studies at Lock Haven University in Athletic Training, my life plans were altered. I changed my major to education. I obtained my BSE from Millersville University in Middle Level Education with a Science Concentration. I worked in several fields during my time in college including stops in the mental health and alternative education fields.
Along with teaching here at Norhteastern, I also have 20 years of coaching experience in both football and baseball. I am currently a Varsity football coach for our own Bobcats! I enjoy spending time with my wife and our new puppy Murphy. I am a huge sports fan in paticular for the Dallas Cowboys, New York Mets, Atlanta Hawks, and the University pf Pittsburgh! We love going to sporting events as well as attending Northeastern sports to watch students and players perform. We regularly attend college football games at my wife's Alma Mater, The University of Maryland.
I have a passion for learning and teaching. Students are the bridge to tomorrow and I am proud to have a small part in their future. My philosophy in teaching can be summed up with this qote by John Wooden: "The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best TODAY." I look forward to great success and learning this year on the Orange Team.
I use Google Classroom during the school year and will post all my materials on their for your child to access. If you have any questions please refer to my contact information above.
