Valerie Baggett loves the laboratory, as she worked in industry for 20 years in the development, testing, documentation, and marketing of scientific instruments. She is the chemistry lab coordinator overseeing the ordering, organization, and safety of the chemistry stockrooms, along with the oversight of the General Chemistry and Chem 120 laboratories. She also teaches Principles of Organic and Biochemistry, part of the chemistry requirement for nursing and some kinesiology majors. She developed the online Chemistry Placement Tutorial and is the resource instructor for iIntroduction to chemistry. She loves to see God’s attributes revealed in chemical compounds and wants her students to enjoy that too.
