Classes that I currently teach
Favorite Teaching Moments
One of my favorite teaching moments 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.
Another favorite moment occurred during my training to become an UndocuAlly. One of my former students was on the panel of undocumented students. As part of his presentation, he thanked me for the respect and one-on-one help he got in my class.
With 4-10 students per semester, work on various chemical education topics. Past and current work includes a lab experiment involving nanoparticles and plants, an educational model of an AFM, and homemade antacid tablets. More information
