About Me:

Welcome to my page. My name is Ken Wagner. I am a born and raised Walton native and graduated from Walton Central School in 2002. I decided to pursue my studies at the State University of New York College at Oneonta in the field of Chemistry. I graduated from SUNY Oneonta in 2006 with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Chemistry. I went directly back to college at SUNY Oneonta and received my teaching Certification in Adolescent Education in 2007. During this time I also worked for the College as an Adjunct Lecturer in General and Organic Chemistry. In 2008 I got my first high school teaching job here at Walton Central School. In 2012 I received my Master's of Arts degree in Adolescent Education in Chemistry from Western Governors University. I teach Regents Chemistry, Regents Physics, and currently Astronomy. However, in the past I also have taught Regents Biology Laboratory and Regents Earth Science.
