Welcome to High School Chemistry. I look forward to meeting all of you. I am a new teacher at ECF this year. Before coming here, I spent 12.5 years teaching science at Mt. Tabor. My first semester at ECF was really awesome and I’m excited about teaching Chemistry this semester. I am married and my husband works with the Early College program in Wilkes County. I have two sons, Paul, who teaches math here at ECF and Mark, who is a freshman at NC State.
The material we cover in this course will follow the North Carolina State Standards. There is a Common Core state exam. In order to cover all of the material needed for the exam, we will work at a quick pace. You will have homework every night. This will usually consist of reading a section of your textbook and working problems. In class, we will have activities to reinforce the material you read for homework. There will also be lab activities and quizzes. I will check homework for completion. You will usually have a quiz once each week that will cover material in the chapter you are reading and previous chapters. The quiz for the week will contain a couple of homework problems so be sure to do your homework.
You will have a test at the end of each chapter.
