Mrs. LusardiAP ChemistryDear AP Chemistry Student and Parent,Welcome to AP Chemistry! I am excited to begin this journey with you! For those of you that do not know me, my name is Mrs. Danielle Lusardi and I will be your instructor for AP Chemistry for the 2013-2014 school year. In case you want to know a little bit about me, here's some background information. I was born and raised here on Long Island. This is my 6th year teaching, 4th year at St. Anthony's. Prior to teaching, I worked in a lab as a chemist for 2 years, but found I am much too social to work independently in a lab. I have taught Biology, Regents Chemistry, Honors Chemistry, AP Chemistry and Physics. I graduated from the University of Delaware with a double-major in Chemistry and Business Administration. I played sports my whole life, both in high school and in college, so I have mastered the juggling of academics and athletics. I also have two young children, who keep me very busy when I am not teaching or coaching here at St. Anthony's.Overview of Course Expectations:2014 AP Chemistry Exam- Monday May 5th! AP Chemistry is a college level course. It is a time-consuming and challenging, yet extremely rewarding course. This course moves at a very fast pace and classroom attendance is a MUST! Students will be prepared to do college level work of any type upon completion of this course due to the thought processes used and the discipline/work habits required. To have success on the AP exam, students will need to spend on average five to ten additional hours per week outside of class working on AP Chemistry. This time will be spent on homework assignments, pre-labs, lab reports, problem sets, etc. These statements are not meant to discourage, but to point out and state the truth to avoid any misconceptions about the high expectations for this course. I will do my very best to provide a college level course/experience which not only prepares you for the AP exam, but provides...
