Jennifer Brazier is a Chemistry teacher at Lakeridge High School in Lake Oswego. Her nominator, Phillip Kearns is a former student from Lake Oswego High School where Jennifer used to teach. Here's what Phillip had to say about Mrs. Brazier:
Mrs. Brazier was my physics teacher last year, and until her class began, I had never cared so passionately about a subject in school. Mrs. Brazier engaged the class, got everyone excited about the material, and gave us the feeling that she wanted her students to succeed more than anything else. She made physics exciting by using famous movie stunts as example problems and making every lesson we learned relevant to the modern world. The in-class demos were some of the highlights of the class. One day we looked at how sound waves could be modeled with fire and a speaker, and another day we had the chance to calculate the acceleration of a police cruiser in the parking lot. This is the only class I have ever had where I looked forward to the tests, because I knew how well she had prepared her students, and I genuinely enjoyed solving the problems. Mrs. Brazier had a talent for making her students feel like they were part of something special, and a unique skill for showing us that every formula applied to the real world. She influenced me, and all of her students, by introducing us to the fascinating world of physics, and showing what an impact an incredible teacher can have.
Congratulations Jennifer Brazier from K103!
