I, the founder of Chemistry with Confidence, taught high school chemistry for four years. During that time, I had the privilege of teaching both Level (Regular) and Pre-AP Chemistry as well as coaching a UIL Science Team. Now, I use that invaluable experience to create chemistry curriculum that I hope will inspire confidence in both students and teachers.
The teaching philosophy of Chemistry with Confidence can be summed up by two basics educational principles or routines. "1. Teach It, Practice It, Test It" and "2. I do, We do, You do". To learn more, check out the Teaching Philosphyof Chemistry with Confidence!
As a teacher, one of the greatest awards I can receive is when my students 'get it'. I love seeing them dawn with understanding!

Chemistry with Confidence is a curriculum filled with video lessons, activities, labs, and various types of practice work. The goal of Chemistry with Confidence is to create an engaging and relevant chemistry curriculum that inspires confidence in both students and teachers. As a teacher, I was exasperated in my attempts to find helpful curriculum for my students, and this exasperation was spurred on by the frustrated, confused looks of students who just had trouble 'getting' chemistry. From my time as a teacher, I gained valuable knowledge about what works and what doesn't work when teaching various chemistry topics. From that knowledge, Chemistry with Confidence curriculum is being created with the goal of making chemistry learning do-able for the average high school student.
