Moles hang overhead and chemistry puns are said periodically. This is a day in the life of a student in Pre-AP Chemistry teacher Kerri Boyd’s class. Boyd offers an eccentric look into the world of Chemistry with quirky comments and resounding volumes. Even though it is a purposely challenging class, Boyd proves the late night study sessions are all worth it by instilling a grand knowledge of Chemistry into the heads of all students she crosses.

Iconic Phrases:

1. Boom! Yes!

2. Moles are the heart of chemistry.

3. Making it happen, living the dream.

4. I just work here.

5. *mouthing words*

6. Don’t be an idiot. Before you do something, ask yourself the crucial question: Would an idiot do this? If the answer is “yes”, don’t do that thing.

7. *fake crying*

8. And a hush fell over the crowd.

1. Do the homework: It may seem like a waste of time, but it helps with your understanding of the topic at hand.

2. Don’t be afraid to ask questions: The only bad questions are the unasked ones.

3. Read the book: This may sound simple, but reading the textbook boosts comprehension.

4. If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand.

5. Pay attention in the labs: Safety is number one. You don’t want to be the person who burned off their eyebrows.

6. Keep your binder and journal neat: No teacher likes the kid who takes 12 years to find his or her homework.

7. Watch the videos Boyd sends: They’re all under four minutes, enjoyable and informative.
