Jim Kotz received his degree in Applied Math and Physics from the University of Michigan, receiving a graduate fellowship at Wayne State University. While in grad school, Jim wrote a thesis on the electrical and thermal properties of a type of conductive glass, which now has application in a type of computer memory chip. It was also during this time that Jim was first introduced to Waldorf education through the son of a lab associate. After completion of his PhD, he completed his Waldorf teacher training and began to teach part-time at Highland Hall Waldorf School. Jim’s stated goal is “to work with colleagues to strengthen an already well-integrated high school program to further meet the educational needs of 21st century adolescents, especially in regard to their relationship to science and technology.”
