Cimaglia, Joseph

Mr. Cimaglia is a science teacher at UNMS who can’t get enough of the subject! He is originally from the southeast coast of Florida, where the underwater world is a second home for him. His love for SCUBA diving sparked his science adventure, but since he moved to New York, he has become more and more of an outdoor adventurist.

He earned his Bachelor’s Degree from University of Miami, studying Microbiology and Science Education. He then earned his Master’s Degree in Science Education at nearby Teachers College at Columbia University. 

He is always looking for opportunities to learn more through experiencing the outdoors and really likes to question everything natural around him. The only thing he may like more, is investigating these questions with his students! Mr. Cimaglia is a science teacher at heart, but definitely appreciates the way all subjects and themes can truly become interdisciplinary.

Mr. Cimaglia has been a member of the UNMS community since 2016.
