Learning is achieved with student involvement.
In college chemistry we must not just teach a body of knowledge, its connections to the world students live in, and the basic principles that make the body of knowledge correct, but we need to foster active learning. The latter helps students actually learn the chemistry (not just a list of data to be repeated on the test) and will help them in all of their studies in school and after
As a teacher I am just the facilitator of learning. The students actually do the work of learning.
I enjoy teaching freshman chemistry science majors, freshman chemistry for non-science majors and analytical chemistry.
I am an analytical chemist with an interest in biochemistry. I enjoy interdisciplinary projects in these areas of research. My current research involvement is to help when I can in the projects of my colleagues.
