Mrs. McDonald's Science Stuff

  • I've been a science teacher at Southwest since 2010. After several years as a research chemist, I returned to school to pursue my true calling as an educator.  I have a Masters in Science Education from Wake Forest University and a BS in Chemistry from UNC-Wilmington. I look forward to contributing to the success of my students and to instill in them an appreciation and understanding of chemistry as well as science in general.  Follow me on Twitter @SciSorceress or email me at
