Chemistry: Dale Jensen
In 1977 Dale Jensen received his degrees in Biology and Chemistry from the University of Oregon. He taught Chemistry and Physics in Oregon at North Medford High School for 33 years. But teachers must teach, so Dale came out of retirement and took a job teaching Chemistry and Physics at Syracuse High School in Utah. When his father-in-law's health brought him back to Oregon, Dale was offered a position at a private school in Medford - St. Mary’s High School.
For the past twenty-two years Dale has worked as a consultant for the College Board conducting weekend and week-long workshops; has been an active Reader/Table Leader/Question Leader for the AP Chemistry exam; and served on the SAT Test Development Committee for the Chemistry specific test. In 2014 and 2016, the College Board asked Dale to present two-day AP Chemistry workshops in China.
Dale's final years in education will be teaching AP Science courses at St. Mary's High School and traveling abroad sharing with educators what he has learned about teaching science.
