My name is Stacy and I hold a Masters degree in organic chemistry. Currently, I am the Director of General & Organic Chemistry Laboratories at St. Lawrence University. In addition to the Masters degree, I also hold a Bachelors degree in Biochemistry.
I have had over 15 years experience teaching college-level class sizes from 1 to 300 in biology, human anatomy, physiology, microbiology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry.
As an educator, I think it is important for students to learn to apply the knowledge they acquire to world problems. As such, my teaching style is two-fold. First, I give students a basic overall knowledge of the concepts taught in the curriculum. Second, the student is asked to apply that knowledge in a problem-solving format so that they learn to use the skills they have learned, essentially, what an employer is looking for, when they hire.
In today's world, students need an academic advantage to get and keep a good job. My goal is, and has always been, to educate and train students to perform the tasks that they would be expected to perform as practicing scientists.
