Bridge Academy

Psalm 32:8


Description: Chemistry is not just elements on a chart or dots around a symbol. Chemistry is the substance of life on Earth. In this college-prep class we will learn the concepts of chemistry and provide the strong foundation necessary to further understand many of the other sciences. Learning from a Biblical worldview, we will come one step closer to understanding our surroundings while strengthening our faith that the Creator has designed a magnificent and purposeful world. 

Chemistry is broken into two parts, lectures and labs. Lectures will be offered on Tuesdays either 1st period or 3rd period and labs that support the lecture will be conducted on Fridays, either 1st period or 3rd period. To accommodate your schedule, lectures and labs may be taken at different class periods if you so choose. As an example, you may enroll your student in 1st period lectures on Tuesdays but take the labs section on Fridays during third period. 

Pre-requisite: successful completion of Algebra I

Minimum enrollment: 4 students

Text: Apologia's Exploring Creation with Chemistry (3rd edition), with accompanying solutions manual. If you have the second edition, it will work, but 3rd edition is preferred

B.S. in Biology  / PharmD

I am originally from the actual center of the universe (sorry, Ashland); East Aurora, NY, home of Motorola, Moog, and Fisher Price. I graduated from SUNY Binghamton with a biology degree and SUNY Buffalo School of Pharmacy with a pause in between to join the Air Force. I’ve been homeschooling at least one of my three sons since 2006. Much to their dismay, I could happily spend the entire day doing math problems. I tutored for classical conversations for 6 years. We have been blessed to be at Bridge academy since 2015. I currently work part time at St Mary’s as a pharmacist. I love my job and encourage you to join the Air Force and go to pharmacy school. I am a huge fan of the oxford comma. Since 2019, I’ve had the pleasure of tutoring the next generation of excellent chemists.  Lab is my favorite part of class.  Occasionally we get to blow things up.  Come join us!
