Chelsea Stewart will join the upper school science department and teach chemistry this year after instructing Pharmaceutical Biochemistry to graduate students at the University of California, San Diego.
Stewart was also the head tutor at Reality Changers, a program that assists students with homework and introduces first-generation college students to prospective careers.
Stewart earned her B.S. in Biochemistry and Microbiology at the University of Washington.
Although she has taught college kids before, teaching younger kids appeals to her. As a student, Stewart said chemistry was one of her favorite subjects.
“Chemistry was always fun. We got to do cool demos, and I’m a visual learner, so that appealed to me,” Stewart said. “It’s amazing what you can find out about the world by studying simple, chemical reactions.”
