Fitzgerald, Angel

 
 

Welcome! I'm so excited for my first year at Wando High School!  My name is Angel Fitzgerald, and I teach AP Physics C: Mechanics, AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism, Physics and Honors Physics. 

I have a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Delaware and a master's degree in biotechnology from Johns Hopkins University.  Before discovering my passion for teaching, I worked for the Department of Defense in the areas of chemical and biological warfare defense and critical infrastructure studies.  Before moving to the Charleston area, I taught at Northern Virginia Community College and Annandale High School, a diverse International Baccalaureate high school near Washington, DC.  My passion is helping to instill in students a curiosity about the world around them.

I am new to the Charleston area, and I love the beauty of this area and its people.  Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three sons, biking, and knitting.

Courses Taught

AP Physics C: Mechanics

AP Physics C: Mechanics is equivalent to a one-semester, calculus-based college-level physics course, especially appropriate for students planning to specialize or major in physical science or engineering. The course explores topics such as kinematics; Newton’s laws of motion; work, energy and power; systems of particles and linear momentum; circular motion and rotation; and, oscillations and gravitation. Introductory differential and integral calculus is used throughout the course. Each student must take the Advanced Placement examination for possible college credit. 

AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism

AP Physics C: Electricity and Magnetism is a one semester, calculus-based, college level physics course, and should be taken after AP Physics C: Mechanics. The course explores topics such as electrostatics: conductors, capacitors, and dielectrics; electric circuits; magnetic fields; and, electromagnetism. Introductory differential and integral calculus is used throughout the course. Each student must take the Advanced Placement examination for possible college credit. 

Physics

This course presents a conceptual approach to physics and stresses understanding the application of physical phenomena such as mechanics, momentum, energy, heat, motion, optics, electricity, magnetism, waves, sound, and light. Problem solving is encouraged by the use of relevant physics materials and inquiry-based laboratory materials.  

Honors Physics

This course presents a conceptual approach to physics and stresses understanding the application of physical phenomena such as mechanics, momentum, energy, heat, motion, optics, electricity, magnetism, waves, sound, and light. Problem solving is encouraged by the use of relevant physics materials and inquiry-based laboratory materials. This honors level course emphasizes a mathematical approach with extensive laboratory experiences, research and projects. 

Course Webpages


Students wishing to keep up to date in class can access our activities and materials through Google Classroom.  They will need to use their CCSD school gmail user id (username@ccsdschools.com) and password to login at classroom.google.com.  Then "JOIN" our class using code (obtain from teacher).  Any parents who would like access to their student's Google Classroom page should send me an email, and I'll be happy to help you.
