The website contains my best advice and information for parents and students, including explanations of what you see when you check your grades with Pioneer’s on-line grade viewer and the date and time of the last grade update. 

Each Monday, on my board in the classroom, I post a schedule of lunchtime and after-school times during which I am available for extra help.  Please consult this schedule and see me for the help you need!  I have times available every day, and I’m happy to help!

Please be aware that I occasionally make changes to homework assignments that will not be reflected on these syllabi.  Students are notified of all changes during class and are responsible for making these changes on their copies of their syllabus.

Mr. Glasser feels so privileged to have been teaching at Pioneer since 2000.  He graduated from Stanford University in 1995 with a bachelor’s degree in American Studies, a course of study comprising American history, government and literature.  He then spent a year student-teaching in New York City and graduated in 1996 from Teachers’ College, Columbia University, with a master’s degree in the Teaching of Social Studies.  For four years before coming to Pioneer, he taught US History, English, Music and French at Carrabassett Valley Academy, in Maine (where Mr. Glasser grew up).  Mr. Glasser’s wife is the Associate Head of School at a K-8 school in San Jose, and their two sons are students there, in the 3rd and 6th grades.  Mr. Glasser loves playing jazz guitar, coaching Little League and listening to baseball on the radio.  He considers himself personally responsible for the Red Sox winning the World Series in 2004.
