In the early 1990's I migrated from a career in chemistry and in the marketing-end of computers at IBM, into science teacher education. Now, with my work at Empire State College (SUNY), I teach online primarily and use as much tech-based and virtual means that are possible to network and grow new teachers of science into inquiry-based methods.
