Hi all. I'm completed my first year as HS chemistry teacher at Franklin Community High School in Johnson County. My background is in analytical chemistry from industry. I became interested after hearing Dr. Lecher give a talk about green chemistry at the HASTI conference in Indianapolis. I feel it is necessary to start teaching green chemistry and green to our young students before they enter the university world. I hope to continue to follow Marian University in their strive to develop green chemistry labs and a possible curriculum for the high school level.
