Hello! My name is Nicole Walbek and I am the chemistry teacher here at STEM. I received a Bachelor of Science in chemistry in 2015 and a Master of Science in environmental science in 2019. I worked for two years in the pharmaceutical industry as an analytical chemist before going back to school for my master's degree. I also assisted in teaching multiple college level laboratory courses including general chemistry, analytical chemistry, and environmental science. I love every discipline in the field of science, and have quickly learned that I love teaching it as well.
I grew up in Colorado, and couldn't be happier to live in such an awesome state. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, rock climb, learn languages, and read. I also love the mountains and try to get up there as much as I can. I am currently hiking all of the 14ers in Colorado and hope to complete them in the next couple of years.
