Teaching history

I have been teaching at UWL since Fall 2012 and have primarily been teaching CHM 103 (General Chemistry I). I have taught the course over 20 times and am passionate about helping students succeed, feel comfortable learning, and understanding fascinating and relevant chemical concepts. I love learning more about how students learn best, and base my teaching philosophy on teaching the whole student, recognizing students' unique strengths and challenges, and helping students connect what they learn in the classroom to the world around them.

Eugenia Turov, Chemistry & Biochemistry; and Tushar Das, Whitney George and Nathan Warnberg, all Mathematics & Statistics; designed an anti-racist education workshop for "the purpose of building a Community of Anti-Racist Educators". In addition, Whitney George and Eugenia Turov co-faciliated the weeklong workshop. The workshop was a resounding success as noted by one participant leaving with 'profound insights about their personal struggles with internalized white-supremacy and how it shows up in their classrooms.'
