   Sing and Cheer for Science
      “Start fairly simply, building to the more outrageous as you
become less inhibited. My most outrageous costume so far has been a
female cheerleader. Imagine a cheerleader 1.9 m tall, weighing 90 kg,
wearing a shoulder-length wig, a headband, a cheerleader’s shirt and
plaid kilt, red tights, white socks, sneakers and a red sweater
emblazoned with a large letter “C,” a flask, and an H+ of white felt.
Swinging my pom-poms, I lead my students in chemistry cheers.”

      Words of Wisdom
“I believe in academic excellence, hard work,
and having fun. The magic of teaching and
learning science is that you can combine all
three. Many of my students who have become
scientists, doctors, and engineers tell me that
graduated from high school with strong
science backgrounds. Is science fun? You
better believe it-just ask my students.”
          Final words…

“If you’re teaching chemistry, and
  you’re not having fun, you must be
  doing something wrong.”
