Knowledge of chemistry is valuable and applicable in our daily lives as well as in the pursuit of so many professional jobs and careers. Having taught science students on many academic levels, from middle school and high school to college level, I have always felt that the most important goal of teaching science is to help students develop essential critical thinking and problem-solving skills. In addition, I hope to inspire an appreciation of chemistry and its relationship to many other fields of interest, and to encourage students to further their chemistry education.
