Marci Harvey

Marci Harvey teaches physics and integrated science in the UNCSA High School Academic Program. She joined the faculty at UNCSA in 2017 after serving Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools for nearly 20 years.

My teaching style is very interactive and collaborative. Students work together to solve problems. We observe, collect data, develop a model and test the model in problem-solving. Students learn how to communicate and share their thinking with evidence and reasoning.
