• Mr. Shangraw  



    Hello!!  I am the Department Chair and will be teaching AP Environmental Science and Academic Chemistry this year.  This is my eleventh year as a full-time teacher at Potomac Falls.  Before switching careers into teaching, I spent 18 years as an executive in an environmental and information technology management consulting firm.

    A long time ago, I earned a BS in chemistry from the College of William and Mary.  I continued my studies and received a Masters in Chemistry from Harvard University and a Masters in Environmental Health Management from the Harvard School of Public Health.  Between my graduate degrees, I spent two years teaching undergraduate pre-med organic chemistry at Harvard on a full-time basis. While my early career after grad school took me in a different direction, I have always had a passion for teaching; I am excited to be teaching here at Potomac Falls.

    I enjoy cooking, travel, and spending time in the outdoors.  I have lived in Loudoun County for 32 years.  I am married with two children; my wife teaches Social Sciences (DE Gov) at Stone Bridge High School.
