Welcome to Chemistry. I am delighted that you have chosen Chemistry as your science this year. This year we will be studying matter and the changes that matter undergoes. The main areas of chemistry we will study are chemical reactions properties of gases, aqueous solutions, thermochemistry, reaction rates, acids/base chemistry, and redox reactions.
I was born in New York. I joined the Air Force after high school and became a medic. After leaving the Air Force, I went to college at New Mexico State University and earned a B.S. degree in Chemistry. After working for 10 years in chemistry, I went back to school and earned my teaching certificate from the University of Phoenix and an M.A. degree in Leadership in Education from Northern Arizona University. I have been teaching in Gilbert Public schools since 1998.
