Mr. Michael Newman

Welcome to my teacher page. I am one of the seven technology education teacher here at the high school. This year I am teaching Wood and Materials, and Home Mechanics, Wood and Materials is taught in the wood lab room 77 in the technology building and Home mechanics is taught in room 73. This is my 25 year of teaching in the Upper Darby School District. I am Upper Darby graduate, and my father attended Upper Darby as well, and went on to be a principal in Philadelphia. My mother was a counselor at Drexel Hill Middle school for 35 years before retiring. My sister is a middle school teacher in the Sun Valley School District. Many of my former students have gone on to successful careers. I realize that not all of the students that take my class, plan to go on to be architects and or woodworkers, although many of them have. I structure my classes so that students gain knowledge into the content area, and if they decide to, can pursue more education in that particular area, or move in a different direction. I am passionate about antique, and classic cars. I enjoy collecting and restoring them in my spare time.
