"Perhaps more than in any other discipline, chemistry builds upon itself and requires a solid foundation. There is no denying its construction is a challenge; a student cannot be passive and expect to succeed. My approach in the classroom is not only to convey my own understanding but also to create an environment in which students can develop critical thinking and analytical skills and build a solid foundation through practice and making connections throughout the curriculum."
