Welcome to an exciting year in Chemistry! This class will emphasize chemistry fundamentals as well as the scientific process and problem solving skills. Much of our class will be based on laboratory information, classroom activities and problem solving within guided groups. Oftentimes, you will also be given a set of information and your task will be to make connections and find meaning in the information. Be prepared to actively participate!
This is my 12th year as a teacher. I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico and moved here about 10 years ago. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Brigham Young University and a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of New Mexico and another Master’s in Teaching and Teacher Education from the University of Arizona.
Every summer I look for opportunities to improve my teaching practice. I have enjoyed working as a camp instructor for ASU’s Summer Engineering Academy. I also had the opportunity to participate in the CBiRC (Center for Biorenewable Chemicals) Summer Academy at Iowa State University. In the past I have spent three summers as a SRP teacher intern in the Air Quality and Lab Services Department. I have also worked for three summers at Fermilab, a Department of Energy research laboratory in Batavia, Illinois.
Before becoming a teacher, I taught English in Taiwan. During my free time I enjoy gardening, reading, hiking, camping and traveling. I look forward to learning more about you and helping your achieve your academic goals this coming year.
