Inspiring the next generation

Do you remember the teacher who first inspired your love of chemistry? You can probably picture that educator’s face and the excitement it conveyed. If you dream of opening the minds of the next generation to behold the wonder and mystery of chemistry, then you’ve found your path as a chemistry teacher.

At SFA, you’ll learn in the classroom and conduct research with our high-tech lab equipment. This research experience will prove invaluable when you take the helm of a classroom. Our focus on hands-on education will inspire you to bring experiential learning to your own students as well. Learning by doing is the Lumberjack way.
