5+ years of teaching experience

It is important to me that every student feels comfortable and confident in my classroom. My teaching focuses on promoting active discussions involving all students, which I believe is a better learning environment compared to a typical classroom where they are passively listening to me. I want to help my students draw connections between key concepts in chemistry and develop their critical thinking skills so that they are constantly asking, “why does this happen?”
