Sanford "Sandy" Strunk
I am excited to join Utmost Academy as a Chemistry teacher. I have a Master’s degree in Chemistry from the University of Minnesota, 25 years experience as a professional chemist in private industry, and a passion for teaching. My wife and I run a shop in Dinwiddie County selling herbs, spices, & essential oils, and we grow vegetables, herbs, and flowers for sale in our greenhouse. I have tutored students from seventh grade to college level. In addition to teaching Chemistry, I hope to instill in my students a curiosity about the world around them. Why is the sky blue? Why is grass green? One of my spiritual mentors once said, “There is more theology in a blade of grass than all the books ever written.” The hand of God is everywhere in creation if you care to look for it. I see no conflict between science and the Word of God, and will do my utmost to nurture both in my students.
