    • Mr. Estes

      Mr. Estes is the type of science teacher that all students wish to have as a part of their educational journey. As a long-time Pennsylvania resident and York Country Day School graduate, Mr. Estes has always been fascinated by nature, mathematics, and puzzles. Throughout his time as a physics student at the Stevens Institute of Technology, Mr. Estes chased the thrill of solving puzzles, pursued questions about nature, and inspired others to join him. It is this love of perpetual curiosity that motivated Mr. Estes to pursue a career in education.
