Favorite Teaching Moment My favorite teaching moment was when I got a picture from a student who, after class, went home and built his own conductivity apparatus and sent me a picture of himself holding it while giving the thumbs up. The picture was a total surprise, and I knew I had reached him through my teaching.
In collaboration with Professor Gang-yu Liu at UC Davis, work on various chemical education topics. Past work includes bringing SCC students to UC Davis to do SEM, a lab experiment involving nanoparticles and plants, and an educational model of an AFM.
