Teaching Philosophy

My program of scholarly activity is integral to my success as a teacher, and I have found that it infiltrates all aspects of my teaching. Current pedagogical interests focus on developing new courses and laboratory exercises in environmental and analytical chemistry which center on providing students with real-world, hands-on experiences.
