Mr. Bailey (HS Chemistry Core, HS Honors Chemistry Core, HS Year Book Electiive)

Steve Bailey received a BA in Biological Sciences with a minor in chemistry in 1985 from CSU Stanislaus. He spent the next two years studying a population of lizards while enrolled in the biological sciences program in the graduate school of New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Upon his return to California, he worked as a chemical analyst in an EPA certified test facility in Modesto while waiting to enter a teacher certification program. Since 1990, Mr. Bailey has enjoyed teaching all levels of Biology and Chemistry to High School and College Students in Barstow and Fort Irwin.

Mr. Bailey strives for excellence from himself and his students and continually helps students understand and challenge themselves to understand and appreciate the nuances and connections between the different disciplines of the sciences and the importance of the sciences in our daily lives. In 1996 He took a 3-1/2 year "hiatus" from teaching while he worked for San Bernardino County Schools on several technology projects which gave him the opportunity to work closely with teachers in many different schools around this region of southern California. He has been back in the classroom since 2000 working on creative ways to help students understand and master difficult chemistry skills and concepts.
