1. Our classroom is an interactive, positive learning environment. Students should never stop questioning, as learning science does not progress without questioning.
2. Dedication, commitment, and hard work are necessary for success and to understand difficult concepts. I truly believe that each student will be successful.
3. Throughout the Honors and AP courses, we conduct MANY experiments and activities that demonstrate, reinforce, and apply chemical concepts. These experiences are often more important than lecture experiences.
4. Chemistry prepares students to become higher level and more critical thinkers, and better problem solvers. With that comes a higher expectation of maturity and responsibilities.
