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 instilling in them an appreciation and understanding of chemistry as well as science in general. I was selected to be an NC Space Education Ambassador for NASA this past fall and look forward to implementing "space stuff" into the curriculum. Follow me on Twitter @SciSorceress or email me at email@example.com.
