Who is Mrs. Korff?

Hello!  I am Mrs. Korff and I love teaching Chemistry!!!!  I love doing fun 
experiments with my students and watching their faces light up.  I love 
teaching abstract concepts and breaking it down so that the students can 
understand it better.  I love challenging students' creativity through hard 
work and seeing them years later as they report of positive effects from 
lessons (chem and life) learned in chem class.  I love hearing that they 
don't mind science after chemistry and I love it even more when they pursue 
a science related career!


My theory is that I am the Chemistry Coach and the class is my team.  Since 
every good team needs to work hard to win games and championships, I expect 
all my students to do their best and work hard.  I demand the best from my 
team and expect them to push the neurons in their brains to the max!


I am an avid marathoner who has run 26.2 miles (a marathon) 102+
times.  I have also run a marathon in all 50 states plus DC.

Where have my legs taken me?

103. Marine Corps Marathon, DC 104. LA marathon, LA, CA Goal: 100 marathons before I’m 50 years old. (Goal Acheived 11 years ahead of schedule). Through our chemistry class, students not only learn how chemistry is everywhere in life, but they are also prepared to tackle higher level thinking, future life predicaments and anything life may throw at them! Top Ten Reasons to Take Chemistry (based on students surveyed) 10) I actually have a good base of chemistry if I want to do science in college. 9) Slide Shows and Shout Outs. 8) You'll do projects/labs/activities/problems that you never thought you could do! 7) You can impress your future dates with your knowledge of chem. Hey baby, what's up? 6) Mole Day x 3! 5) I'm smarter than my friends with the "Korffy" way. 4) Chemistry Idol. 3) You'll be smarter than the average person walking down the street. You will end up tutoring kids in your dorm when you get to college. And feel so super smart! 2) Korff's life lessons and commercials. 1) The Korffys! red carpet treatment. You won't realize how good you have it until you don't have her anymore.
