Welcome to Chemistry, the "Central Science." Chemistry is the study of matter and how it interacts, combines and changes...kind of like magic. Chemistry is a challenging course for many students but with the proper amount of effort and a little perseverance, you will find it to be manageable and even interesting!
This is my 17th year of teaching and my 4th year at Poquoson High School. I taught Biology for 3 years, followed by Chemistry for the past 13 years. Prior to that, I worked for 16 years in the food industry as both a Quality Assurance Manager and Director of Technical Services. My responsibilities included overseeing USDA certified labs in Chemistry and Microbiology, so I try to share with my students how the concepts they are learning are practically applied in the real world. Believe it or not, you may use this information later in life and depending on what field you choose after high school, this could be the first of several Chemistry related courses you will take.
Finally, I have been married for 35 years and I have 3 grown children, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I am a VA Tech graduate, as is my husband and my oldest son. I also have another son who currently attends VA Tech...so GO HOKIES!
I look forward to working with you this year!
