Mrs. Candace Schneggenburger is a Chemistry teacher at Palmyra Macedon High School.  She is not only the lead teacher for the science department but she is also lead science teacher for her district.  Mrs. Schneggenburger participates in and presents at chemistry workshops, most recently here at NERM during the teacher workshop on Sunday.  Her principal describes her as having a can-do attitude, prepared to do anything possible to help out her colleagues, her students and her family.  Her commitment to students and colleagues is what led the committee to name Ms. Candace Schneggenburger as the Rochester ACS 2012 High School Chemistry Teacher of the Year.
