Andy Whitmore, the product of two Shrewsbury High School teachers, is following a teaching path of his own. Whitmore has taught physics and engineering at the unique Massachusetts Academy of Math and Science in Worcester, the Telegram and Gazette reports.
Whitmore, who has worked as a mechanical engineer at Wyman-Gordon in Grafton, plans on teaching at another public high school after his time at the Massachusetts Academy.
"This is exciting. Itís more fulfilling," he said of the alternative public school.
The Massachusetts Academy is open only to juniors and seniors, and has an agreement with Worcester Polytechnic Institute, where some seniors take classes. The model for the school is being looked at for a similar program in Lowell.
