Welcome! Over the course of the year we will be building scientific investigation skills and using these skills as we explore our view of matter, how it behaves and the role of energy in chemical systems.

My Educational Philosophy
Life is series of learning events. As part of this series of events, a quality public education allows for students to interconnect socially as well as academically. Humans are naturally curious, so they benefit from and enjoy discussing, watching, and experimenting with scientific principles. As a teacher I look to examine and expel misconceptions that people might have about chemistry. When basic knowledge can be applied in the classroom setting the learning experience for students becomes deeper and more personal. This is most certainly my goal, and should be for every teacher.
