Ms. Laura Felosak - IB Chemistry & Chemistry Teacher
I studied at the University of Michigan, where I earned my B.S. in Secondary Education with a major in Biology as well as a minor in Chemistry. After student teaching and working in Plymouth-Canton schools, I found my way to WIHI as a long-term substitute teaching Bio and Chem. I’m excited to be an official part of the WIHI crew as my fourth year and can’t wait to lead experiments in our brand new lab! In addition to teaching Chemistry and IB Chemistry, When I’m not in the lab or talking science, I love watching Michigan football (GO BLUE!!), traveling to new places, skiing, and relaxing Up North.
