Hello!!  My name is Kathy Celestine.  Currently I am teaching pre-AP chemistry and AP chemistry at Magnolia High School.
My undergraduate degree is from Lyon College, Batesville, Arkansas.  My major was biology and my minor was chemistry.  I have done graduate work at the University of Houston and taken several chemistry courses designed for teachers at Rice University.
I look forward to working with your student this year as we explore chemistry.

AP chemistry review

While it says summer review (I thought I changed the title), it is NOT for a grade.  Doing this review will definitely save you heartache and pain later on and make you more confident when we hit the tougher material.

AP chem students, if you want to review. . .

Here is a  review of some basic chemistry concepts and calculations.  It would be great if you could look this over and give us a head start on the coming school.  Enjoy your summer!!

Cell Phone Policy

Unless the teacher says "keep your phone as you will be needing it to complete an assignment today," you need to gently place your cell phone, off, in the cell phone box.  If you are on your cell phone, you are not learning the chemistry being taught in the classroom and your grades will be stinky.
