I have been teaching for science since 1987. I started my career after completing a dual degree program at the University of Maryland College Park with a B.S. in Chemistry and a B.S. in Secondary Science Education. At first I taught middle school life science and physical science. Eventually, I switched to teaching high school chemistry and, along the way, I earned my Master's in Education. I have been at Salisbury University since 2001, teaching general chemistry and organic chemistry laboratory. While the curricular content hasn't changed much over the years, the students have! And, it's the students who make it worth while.
