Abstract: "No Chemist (or Chemistry Teacher) is an Island". This talk will present a bit of Dr. David Tweeten's history as a chemist and chemistry teacher, and show how dependent teachers (and other chemists) are on the collective knowledge of chemists through time. He will emphasize how important organizations like 3M and local ACS are in encouraging teachers in their work.
