IMG_0759 (2).JPGFirst day of class selfie!Hi!  I just finished my 11th year as a Senior Instructor teaching large sections of General Chemistry 1 and 2 at the University of Colorado, Boulder.   After 19 years of teaching almost exclusively General Chemistry, I still love it and I am always surprised that it's still possible to get a deeper understanding of a topic after all these years!

I like trying new strategies to improve student engagement and achievement so I look forward to participating in this project, learning new things and possibly getting some fresh ideas for my classroom.
