Brief Bio:
I am currently an associate professor at KSU working in the area of chemical education. Prior to arriving at KSU in 2004, I taught high school chemistry, physics and mathematics for seven years in Columbia, SC. While in Columbia, I earned a M.Ed. in Science Education, National Board Certification, and a Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry. My teaching has been focused on both chemistry and chemistry education courses for science majors and chemistry students seeking to become certified K12 teachers. Other involvements include serving as the director of the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Science program (2008-2012) and as the undergraduate chemistry education program coordinator (2004-2010). In 2011 I was honored to receive the Georgia College Science Teacher of the Year by the Georgia Science Teachers Association.
