CHEM 200 TEAM
Hello everyone! My name is Megan, I’m a 4th year Math major, & this will be my 6th time being an SI Leader for CHEM 200 (holy guacaMOLE) ! At this point I have 6.02 x 10²³ problems but understanding this class is not one of them. Although I struggled when I took this class as a freshman, SI saved my grade and I genuinely hope you all come visit my sessions and take advantage of this fun and FREE resource!
I really love talking about traveling, camping, river rafting- anything outdoorsy really (also puns make life infinitely better). So, I can’t wait to get to know all of you and share my best advice, tips, and tricks for having a successful experience in this class 🙂
Hey! My name is Lauren and I am originally from Sacramento CA. I am going to be a second year this year, and am majoring in Chemistry with a minor in Interdisciplinary Studies. This is going to be my first year as an SI Leader for CHEM 200 and I’m so excited! I took CHEM 200 my first semester at SDSU as a freshman, and I was honestly so scared for it. Going to SI sessions periodically throughout the week helped my grade skyrocket and alleviated a lot of the stress I had before taking this class, so I’m excited to help all of the new students succeed while taking this class this year. This class really helped solidify my decision to be a Chemistry major,
Hi! My name is Taylor Kallmann and I’m a second year student majoring in Biology with an emphasis in Marine Biology. I was born in Oakland but was raised here in San Diego. This will be my first semester as an SI Leader for CHEM 200/202, and I am so excited to join the SI team! I wanted to become an SI Leader because SI was super helpful when I took this class last semester, and I want to be able to help others succeed in this difficult class. My goal for my sessions is to make sure that everyone benefits and has a good time. On campus I am involved in the Women in Science Society (WSS) and the Marine Ecology and Biology Student Association (MEBSA). When I’m not busy with school, I like to snorkel, surf, hang out at the beach with some friends, or rewatch any of the Marvel movies even if I’ve seen them all way too many times. I also love watching all sports and I never miss a Raiders game. I’m looking forward to this semester and I hope to see you all at one of my sessions!
Hi! My name is Mikayla Krzmarzick and I am a senior at SDSU studying biology with an ecology emphasis. This will be my fourth semester as a CHEM 200 SI Leader (I can hardly believe that!) and am excited to make this semester’s sessions my most entertaining and engaging ones to date! I am originally from Redondo Beach CA but equally love living in San Diego. I became an SI Leader as a freshman because I was intrigued by the teaching profession and wanted to get a taste of what lesson planning and student interactions would be like. Low and behold, I am now fully committed to getting my teaching credential in biology after I graduate in the spring! When I am not buried by course work, I am usually hiking in Mission Trails Regional Park, buying new plants for my garden, or chilling at home watching comedies. Hope to see you at my sessions this semester!
Hey everybody, my name is Isabella and I am a fourth year (eek) Biology major with an emphasis in Zoology! Although I am focusing on Bio, taking Chem 200 as a freshmen made me appreciate and enjoy Chemistry so much more. This will be my fourth semester as a leader for this course and I can’t wait to meet you all. Please feel free to reach out, come sit with me in lecture, and attend my session. I can’t wait for a great semester!
Hi everyone! My name is Abigail, but I usually go by Abby! I am from Los Angeles, California. I am going into my second year at SDSU and I am majoring in Biology. I am currently pursuing a career in medicine and hope to be a pediatric neurologist or pediatric surgeon one day. This will be my first semester as an SI Leader and I am so excited! I took CHEM 200 my first semester at SDSU and it was definitely not an easy class. I struggled a lot at first but after my first test, I started going to SI regularly and it helped my grade improve immensely. SI is an amazing resource at SDSU and I hope to be able to help students as much as my SI Leaders helped me! I’m so excited to watch students grow in their understanding of chemistry in the same way I did. I love going to SDSU and some of my favorite things to do here are hanging out with my friends, going to yoga classes at the ARC, going to the beach, and exploring all the amazing restaurants in San Diego. I cannot wait to meet you and see you at my sessions!
Why do chemists like nitrates? They’re cheaper than day rates. Hi all, my name is Caden Unholz. I am going into my third year as a Biology major, but who knows if that will last. This will be my second year as an SI Leader for CHEM 200, I became an SI Leader because when I took chem 200 I found the program super helpful. And I wanted to be a part of that, I wanted to help my peers have the same aw ha moments I would have during sessions as all the concepts I had learned in class suddenly clicked with all the practice in session. In my sessions I will always try and keep things fun and interesting, I like to play games, hang man and tic-tac-toe are some of my favorites, make jokes, the worse the better, but most importantly I want to help you guys get the grades you want and understand the material of CHEM 200 so you can move on to classes like CHEM 201 and 232. One interesting fact is I don’t like avocado, people say I’m a bad Californian. But to me it is green, squishy, and gross, ironically enough though mint chip ice cream is my favorite though.
