Jeannine M. Christensen
Associate Professor, Science
Moraine Valley Community College
Statement:  The core of my educational philosophy instills the Chinese proverb: “Tell me and I’ll forget, Show me and I’ll remember, Involve me and I’ll understand”. I am not the sage on the stage; rather I am a guide to the topics of fundamentals and organic chemistry. My role as a professor is to provide students with a well prepared and structured lecture to disseminate the material in a manner that inspires students to further their interest in science. I strive to provide my students with the critical thinking skills they will need as they progress to higher level science classes. The most rewarding experiences I have as an educator is when I see students experience the light bulb moment, as it is the culmination of both the student’s and my hard work. I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to work with such outstanding students.
