Theme: Purpose, Belonging, & Skills

Ten years after I walked into an IUS classroom to take my first college class, I returned as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry to teach that same course. Since my return in 1993, I have observed, questioned, studied the literature, experimented, attended workshops, found solutions, and discarded solutions all in the great quest to figure out how to educate our students. Helping our students to develop an interest in the subject area and connect it to their lives are the first steps.
