Currently I'm an adjunct professor at Wright College, City Colleges of Chicago. I've been teaching for over 35 years. I love to learn and share my enthusiam for learning. My first love is chemistry but I also enjoy learning about science, gardening, cooking and baking, linguistics and languages, drawing and painting, and reading. I believe we learn best when we are curious, excited, interested and engaged in our own learning processes.
