LEWISTON, Idaho – Dr. Rachel Jameton of Lewiston has been named Director of the Teaching-Learning Center at Lewis-Clark State College. Jameton is currently a Professor of Chemistry at LCSC. She begins her additional duties this month.
Jameton received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and her doctorate in Chemistry from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. She has taught chemistry at Lewis-Clark State College since 2003. Prior to coming to LCSC, Jameton taught chemistry at The Evergreen State College in Washington. From 1994 to 1996, she was a Peace Corps volunteer in Zinder, Niger where she taught chemistry and physics. Dr. Jameton’s professional interests include developing research opportunities for undergraduate organic chemistry students and the ‘flipped classroom’ concept.
“Dr. Jameton is a master teacher. She is bright and energetic – a winning combination for our first Teaching-Learning Center director,” said LCSC Provost, Lori Stinson. “Her passion for students and support of her faculty colleagues will be key factors in the successful launch of the Center.”
In the College’s 2014 Strategic Plan, President Tony Fernández called for the establishment of a Teaching-Learning Center to promote teaching excellence for LCSC faculty and serve as direct support to promote student success, retention, and graduation.
