Mr. Alexander Chinskey » Home


Welcome to Mr. Chinskey's page! I enjoy teaching science partly because it is usually kids least favorite class, which makes it my job to change their perspective. If you are in my class, congrats, but be ready to work. If you relax, listen, and take clear notes than you will do great and find class rewarding.
