Me and My Classes

         Last year I taught one section of Academic Chemistry, one section of Honors Chemistry and two sections of Forensic Science during the first semester and three during the second semester.  This year, I will be teaching two sections of Honors Chemistry and threeimage - big paper clip sections of Forensic Science each semester.  This is a total of 29 teaching periods per week.

          The chemistry classrooms, in general, have 1 teacher computer and printer station, 6 networked student computers and printer, a TV, a VCR, and a TVator to connect the teacher computer to the TV.  Most of the chemistry rooms are full chemistry lab rooms with lab stations designed for 24 students.
