- About Me
Carol Bonham started her career at Pratt Community College in 1988 as a part time science instructor. Bonham went fulltime in August of 1991 and currently teaches Chemistry and Geology on campus and EduKan.
Along with receiving extra training, Bonham is also involved in a number of organizations to help her stay up-to-date in the science world. She is a member of the National Science Teachers Association and Alaska Geographic.
She has served on the of Kansas Association of Teachers of Science (KATS) board for the past four years and is also a part of the Mohling Foundation, which gives out one scholarship a year for science education.
KATS is to help instructors in all fields of science at all levels of education with advancement, stimulation, extension, improvement and coordination.
“I think it is really important for us to have a network right now,” Bonham said. “We are able to talk about what the other levels are doing and what we should be teaching. This also allows us to provide information about what programs are out there to help each other out.”
Bonham said she decided to go into science because, “studying science is a way to interact with the nature. I enjoy sharing experiences about the natural world with others.”
