Ms. Lizzie Fortin
Hello, East High community! My name is Lizzie Fortin and I will be the honors chemistry and AP chemistry teacher this year. I grew up in Chattanooga, TN, and went to college at Tennessee Technological University. I moved to Memphis 6 years ago and worked as a forensic scientist before receiving a master’s in education and teaching at East. I am really excited to get to know you this year and to be part of the East High community.
Chemistry is a very unique subject and it is absolutely the best! It allows us to connect history, math, reading, and art when solving real-world problems. It can be used to help us learn how to work hard and communicate effectively with our peers. These are skills that will help your child in both their future academic and professional endeavors. Not to mention they will need to use concepts from this course when taking future science courses here at East!
Let’s make it a great year!
