I am a secondary chemistry teacher with experience of the UK, Spanish and IB systems. Also I am the editor and writer of a recently published chemistry text-book, Chemistry 4/5 for the International Student. I hope to use the IYC 2011 to help support my continuing efforts to encourage my students┬┤ interest in chemistry and to stimulate their chemical creativity!
