Class Experience

Students will be true scientists understanding the basic elements of chemistry, gaining knowledge with chemistry vocabulary, and having a fun, hands-on, engaging experience. 
I minored in chemistry and have extensive knowledge in the subject matter. I also have incorporated chemistry over the past 10 years while working with students. Other training/education I have are Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts and Photography minor in Chemistry, AMS Montessori Teaching Certificate, M. Ed in Global perspective, and ABAR Training.
There will not be homework, but some experiments will be started in class and then two days later will need to be observed. For those experiments, I will ask if the students can write or draw in their scientific journals what they are observing.
