Hello. I am Jacqueline Durham and I teach Chemistry here at Aquinas. I have been teaching at Aquinas since the fall of 2008. (Back them I was Jacqueline Kesselring but have changed my name since getting married this summer.)
I have a B.S. in Biomolecular Science from Clarkson University (class of 2005). I spent one semester at Duke University studying in their Doctor of Physical Therapy program before I came to the realization that I didn't want to be a physical therapist... I wanted to be a teacher. I then moved to New York City and attended New York University. I received an M.S. in Teaching & Learning (class of 2007) and spent a year teaching at Beacon High School in Manhattan.
I grew up here in Rochester and am an alumni of Aquinas (class of 2001). My family has very strong ties to Aquinas - 6 of us have already graduated from here and 2 of my siblings are currently attending Aquinas. I am currently involved in a few extra-curricular activities including Catawumpus, the school improv troupe, and theatre.
In my spare time I enjoy being outside, reading, going to movies, Capoeira, Aerial Arts, playing softball and football, and trying new activities. But enough about me... feel free to move on to other parts of my webpage :)
