My name is Paul Groves.  I have taught chemistry and AP chemistry 

at South Pasadena High School from 1979 until 2016.

Chemmybear.com began when the Internet was very young (and so was I).


I thought it would be interesting to have my own domain name.  I chose chemmybear (like gummibear) and used the site to store my classroom handouts.


I believe in supporting my students with answers to handouts.  Worksheets are not quizzes; I think it is important to get feedback when you are learning concepts and doing problems.  For these reasons, many of the handouts on chemmybear.com have answer keys.


Other teachers and students have found chemmybear.com and I am pleased that many have found the handouts useful.  I believe in freely sharing work with other teachers, especially beginning AP teachers.

The photo at the top of the page is part of a video on the Teacher Channel.  When I was a finalist for the California Teacher of the Year, I was contacted to share one of my favorite lessons.  This is fun because it takes place in my classroom.
