Teaching Philosophy 

I believe that organic chemistry should be accessible to everyone. In the classroom, I use pneumonic devices, analogies, and personification to make the material relatable to the students’ experiences. I emphasize that organic chemistry is a language, and that, like a word, one observation can have multiple meanings. My goal is to empower students to see the beauty in this complexity rather than be intimidated by it.
