Fred Pidgeon

President 2011-2012


I am Fred Pidgeon and I have been a STANYS member for over 35 years. I have been Eastern Section Physics SAR, Eastern Section Chair, Eastern Section Director, Vice President, President-Elect, and now president of STANYS. I have presented sessions locally, at the state level, and at the national level. I am a member of NSTA, I was a chem mentor, and I have written and reviewed questions for the NYS Physics regents. I have taught in the public and private sectors and am now an Adjunct professor at SUNY Cobleskill. I have attended the state conference every year since 1977 and I presently help run the very successful raffle give-away. I am married to Colleen with 3 children, two of which, Sean and Tara, are teachers and the third, Erin, is a nurse. STANYS has been a very important part of my life, giving me the opportunity to interact with some of the best teachers in New York as well as across the country. I have become a very good teacher because of STANYS and the people who I have gathered knowledge from at each and every conference. The professionalism of my colleagues is utmost in my heart as I think of the experiences they have provided me. It is my wish to continue to be a viable part of the STANYS family for many years to come.
