  • Hi.  I'm Mr. Carter.
     Me demonstrating the meaning of the term "falling body"
    I graduated Don Lugo two years before Ayala was built.  In high school, I was in the running for the biggest nerd on campus, having been an officer for and written the constitutions for the Clock Club, the Juggling Club (pun intended), and the Role Playing Games Club.  I'm proud to say that with my transition to college I also graduated from nerd to geek, being an active member and officer in Chico State's award winning chapter of The Society of Physics Students.  I have a BS in Physical Science with an emphasis in Astronomy and minors in Physics and Mathematics.  This is my 22nd year teaching at Ayala. While I have also taught chemistry, earth science, and various math courses, my one true academic love is physics.  I hope you're ready to learn the meaning of having phun!
    My preferred method of contact is email:
