Chemistry I and AP Chemistry
My name is Lisa Ratz and I am teaching Chemistry I and I am very excited to be teaching AP Chemistry this year as well. This is my 5th year teaching my favorite subject and I am thrilled to be at Hellgate in the same classroom that I taught in for five years from 1999 - 2004 BK (Before kids) :-) I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Montana Tech and a Master's in Chemistry from the University of Montana. While I was earning my Master's degree, I received my teaching certification from the U of M and shortly after, I earned my broadfield science endorsement.
My husband, Nathan, a mechanical engineer and I met at Montana Tech and have been married for 27 years. I am the proud mom of two girls, Emily, a Sophomore at Montana Tech who is studying to become a Nurse and Sarah, a Sophomore at Hellgate.
I was born and raised in Butte and my husband was born and raised in Whitefish - so, Missoula has been a great place for us to settle and make it our home.
This is going to be a great year - I am looking forward to the opportunity to get to know all of my students and hopefully peak their curiosity and inspire them.
