Mr. Aaron Firebaugh

I graduated from NC State in 2004 and began teaching at Clayton High School the same year.  I received my MSA degree and spent some years in school administration before returning home to CHS in 2019.  I enjoy chemistry, physics, math, and spending time with my family!  I am passionate about helping students think critically and discover science as inquiry.
