SARAH IMBRIGLIO
Associate Professor, Chemistry
“I believe that one of the keys to teaching science is relevance. By putting seemingly abstract information into a context that students can relate to, one can make difficult concepts much more comprehensible. I also think there is no substitute for enthusiasm and passion in the classroom—it really can be contagious!”
