Ronald Sharp
Professor, Chemistry, Science Division
Delta College
Statement:  William Yeats once said “Education is not filling a bucket but the lighting of a fire”. I think of myself as a resource person and cheerleader for my students as they learn about chemistry. I design my classes so the students experience a cycle of learning where both instructor and students teach and learn. A good teacher’s insight motivates each student as they progress from the simpler concrete concepts to the difficult abstract concepts. I strive to accomplish this in class every day so each day becomes a “Great Day for Chemistry”.
