Dr. Alka Goyal
I have a Master's degree in Chemistry from India, a Master's degree in Science education from the University of Minnesota and a Doctorate in Instructional Leadership from Argosy University. This will be my eighth year at Central, and my 21st year as a teacher!!
I have 2 daughters who are also pursuing careers in science. My older daughter is a National Merit scholar who finished medical school at the U of M, and is now a 2nd yr Neurology Resident at Stanford University, California. Here she is, Dr. Tarini Goyal, on their web page http://http://med.stanford.edu/neurology/faculty/residents/tarini-goyal.html !
My younger one is also a National Merit scholar and Presidential Scholar award nominee, who is starting her 2nd yr in Chemical Engineering at California Institute of Technology (CalTech). She spent 2016 summer at Northwestern University, researching materials for solar energy storage.
In my free time, I love to pursue more artsy stuff like painting, knitting, crochet and sewing. During the summer of 2015, I greatly enjoyed teaching “Chemistry of Art” and a "Crochet and hand embroidery" class to middle school students, where I was able to combine my various interests.
I also spent 6 weeks of my summer at 3M as part of the TWIST program internship in 2012, where I was able to see science in action by working with scientists developing new products and testing them.
