As instructor for your child's chemistry/Physics class I would like to introduce myself. I graduated from UNC-Wilimington with a degree in chemistry. I worked 5 years as a chemist in the industry. This will be my tenth year teaching chemistry. My family of six children have lived in Mooresville since 1985. When my oldest child was a senior at Mooresville High I had a child in alternating grades all the way down to first grade. For my husband and myself it was a grand time.
I enjoy my job as a teacher. I enjoy the subject area of my instruction. I enjoy being part of Lake Norman High. It is a wonderful school. I enjoy teenagers..especially when they are kind, nice and courteous. I know everything I do teaches. I know everyday I model for your child what a successful person needs to be doing to reach certain goals in life. I know my job is critical in your child's life. I promise I will do my best.
Chemistry is tough and the standards are high. I am confident my students will be successful at freshman college chemistry. In chemistry the mental analytical skills learned will spill over to other subject areas. It is an applied science and requires imagination and reasoning.
Monday thru Thursday you should see your child doing something with chemistry/Physics at least 3 times a week. You should see a light load or very little study on weekends. Weekends are family time in my opinion, however your child may need the weekend to study. I tell the kids they are mine Monday thru Thursday and they better be "studying". Their highest priority now is a good education. School is their job!
I am normally stay one hour late each day. E-mail is the best way to contact me.
Sincerely, Mrs. Brenda Esselman
