Samuel Glass

Samuel Glass is the collective name of a biological community of about 1x1014 eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells living on the third planet from a G2V star located at about 7.62x103 parsecs from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy in its Orion Arm. Formed since Julian Date 2438786.05139 and currently at coordinates 29.50979 -098.39031 and at 232 meters above mean sea level, this community of cells is composed mainly of O (65% by mass), C (18%), H (10%), N (3%), Ca (1.5%), and P (1.2%) and can be best detected by electromagnetic radiation in the 400x1012 to 790x1012 hertz range.

Oh, and he has a beard.

Mr. Glass has been certified to teach science as a secondary school teacher and has degrees in multidisciplinary science, chemistry, and other assorted certificates. He brings to the classroom his experiences as a freelance Web designer, a Texas Master Naturalist, a laboratory research assistant, and a corporate bookstore manager, where he spent just as much time listening to young people and their concerns as he did with performing administrative duties. Mr. Glass was also named Time magazine's 2006 Person of the Year.

When he’s not up late learning how to be a better teacher, mastering the fine art of parenting, debugging script, or drinking black coffee, Sam blogs about science, education, and Web technologies for his own amusement. Sam dislikes Piña Coladas, although he does like getting caught in the rain. He really enjoys teaching, learning, and exploring our natural world as well as books, music, film, photography, and a certain Gallifreyan from the constellation Kasterborous.

After growing up and living around the world, he is really, really lucky to be married to his best friend of over twenty years. Together with their young son, they are voluntary participants in a long-term experimental ecosystem consisting of three cats (Felis silvestris catus), eight fish (Carassius auratusParacheirodon innesiPseudacanthicus spinosus, and Xiphophorus helleri), two shrimp (Caridina japonica), two mud fiddler crabs (Uca pugnax), thirty-two plants (mostly Lamiaceae), and an unidentified species of snail.
