     Welcome to Chemistry!
    About the
    Instructor:  Mrs. Pamela Kimber
    Mrs. Kimber
     I am a native of the Philadelphia Area and I graduated from Coatesville High School.  I then studied Chemical Engineering at Penn State University where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree. Upon graduation I was employed by RCA at their Astro-Electronics division as a Materials Engineer. After my children were born, I took my next job as a stay-at-home Mom. During that time I attended Millersville University where I received Teacher Certification in Chemistry.  I then received a Master of Education in Teaching and Curriculum at Penn State University.  I have been teaching Chemistry at Spring Grove High School for 20 years. This year, I will be teaching Advanced Placement Chemistry, and  Chemistry I Honors. In addition to my duties as a Chemistry Teacher, I am also the High School Science Department Leader, and Co- Advisor for The National Honor Society, and The Rocket Science Club.
    Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my husband, our three children, son-in law, and two grandchildren. I also enjoy reading, gardening, cooking, and I still play the clarinet and the piano occasionally. Since I am a firm believer that you are never to old to learn, last year I added the cello to my repertoire of instruments.  I like to keep busy.
    About My Expectations:
    Chemistry is a rigorous and challenging science.  It is known as "The Central Science" because it is related to all of the other sciences in some way.  It is my goal to make you think about the chemistry in your world and how it pertains to you and your life.  It is my expectation that you will put forth your best effort and a positive attitude each day.
