 “My interest in chemistry really started when I was a student at CCM. At first, I thought it was too hard, so I never considered it as a career. But my professors, some of whom are still here, really got me excited about it. Some of the teaching techniques that they used on me I now use on my students. It’s just a matter of organizing information in a way that’s easy to understand. With organization and lots of encouragement, it’s amazing what students can learn. Students should never underestimate what you’re capable of learning.”
