Meet Martha Milam, passing on her love for chemistry to the next generation!

Martha earned her Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry at Furman University and my Master’s degree in Physical Chemistry at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She began her career as a chemist at Michelin Tire Corporation in Dothan, Alabama. After moving with her husband to Texas, Martha realized she missed the teaching days of my graduate school years, and in 1995, she began teaching school at Cypress Creek High. In 1999, Martha started her family, and she stayed home for nine years with her daughter and two sons. She started working again in 2008 at East Coweta High School in Sharpsburg, Georgia. Martha teaches chemistry and coaches Science Olympiad. She tells her students that science drives all innovation and that effectively communicating science can create a positive impact on our future.
