Welcome to Accelerate!
Hello! My name is Mary Anne McCreary. I am the facilitator for Accelerate, an intensive engineering program offered through the Governor's School of Math and Science. This is a new program located at ACTC. The students in this class are taking Honor Chemistry, Pre-Engineering, Pre-Calculus and English IV. Next year as a junior, the students will be working on Dual Credit classes like Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering, English Comp 1 and College Algebra.
I have a bachelor's degree in Microbiology from Mississippi State University. My work background is in Chemistry. I have about 10 years' experience working in nutraceutical and medical laboratories. I have been a stay at home mom for the past 14 years with my 5 wonderful children. My children range from 8 to 14 years old. I have 2 dogs named Thor (a boxer) and Hammer (a red nosed pit). We adopted them from the pound. When I have time, I love to sew, paint, read, listen to music, and watch movies.
I am very excited to get back into working with students in subjects that I love. I love to share my excitement for Science and Math and share my work experience stories with my students. I am very excited about the upcoming year and getting to know each of you.
