Julia Winter has been an energetic and inventive teacher for more than 20 years at Detroit Country Day in Beverly Hills, Michigan. She has always challenged herself to try new things and stay abreast of recent advances in teaching of chemistry. The past few years have been especially exciting. She has worked with a mobile game developer to tranform a whiteboard game into a mobile app that helps students to learn organic chemistry concepts. In January 2016, Julia made the emotional decision to take a leave of absence from teaching. She can now devote all of her energy to pursuing grants and developing even more games as CEO of Alchemie. In March of 2016, I was priviliged to interview Julia. I invite you to view the video and hear her energy and passion for yourself.
