This site is maintained by Mike Dappolone, an instructional supervisor and nine-year veteran chemistry teacher in New Jersey. This site began as a portal to making inquiry chemistry materials and resources available to all chemistry teachers, with a special focus on instructors of high quality mini greenhouse chemistry. It has since expanded to include a sample of all of his work in education and educational leadership, plus a gallery for his projects and ideas. Feel free to if you have a comment.

What is leadership? Where does it come from? If you haven't seen this one yet, stop stalling:
