Mr. Jim Kreamer

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 Welcome to a new school year! I am very excited about joining the faculty at PPHS.  As a form of introduction I would like to give you a bit of my background. I have Bachelor’s degree in Geophysics from Northern Illinois University and a Master’s degree in Physics from The University of New Orleans. I spent 23 years with Mobil – ExxonMobil as a research Geophysicist and an additional 7 years with Global Geophysical in management of geophysical projects as well as advancing to a senior position as Director of Data and Project Management.  I have also done work for the Office of Naval Research, the U. S. Antarctic Research Program and the U. S. Geologic Survey. From 2003 through 2007, after leaving ExxonMobil, I received my teaching certification through the UNT Education Department and subsequently taught Physics and PreAP Physics at Aubrey High School. During this time, I also was an adjunct instructor in the Electrical Engineering department at UNT. Due to the severe downturn in the oil industry I left Global in September of 2015 and taught AP Physics at Prosper High School for the 2016-2017 school year.

 

I have some roots in Pilot Point. When I transferred to the Dallas area working for Mobil, I moved my family to Pilot Point. Three of my six children graduated from PPHS. This will be sort of a homecoming for me and my son Jake, who will also be teaching and coaching at PPHS.

     

First and foremost, every student is expected to come to class every day with a positive attitude and readiness to learn. Students will be introduced to new and exciting, and sometimes challenging, scientific concepts. Any student experiencing difficulty with new material will be given individual time and guidance. I will also be available for tutoring after school when needed. Students will often be able to work together on in-class assignments and classwork will sometimes be scored on completion and effort.  We will often start assignments in class and students will be expected to finish them for homework.  Students are expected to obtain, complete, and promptly hand in any work missed due to absence(s). And, of course, I expect all students to do their own work and to ALWAYS do their best! 

    

Kindest regards,

Jim Kreamer
