Mr. Bourg received his bachelor’s degree from Fordham University with a double major in engineering and physics. He is currently pursuing a Masters in Science Education degree from Rutgers University. Previously, Mr. Bourg taught physics in a private school in New Jersey before joining BASIS Independent Brooklyn.
As a 4th and 5th grade science teacher (SET), Mr. Bourg’s goal is to have his classes act as a bridge for students as they transition into middle school. He will be building on the fundamental skills that students have developed in their earlier years of science and applying them to specific areas such as biology, physics, etc. Through these experiences, students will gain the tools to succeed in subject specific science courses in middle/high school.
When not teaching science, Mr. Bourg spends most of his time playing video games such as LoL and Diablo or hanging out in card shops playing Magic and Yu-Gi-Oh.
