Dr. Susan Newton served as faculty at John Brown University from 1991 to 1994 and returned to teaching in 2005. Dr. Newton's courses include Organic Chemistry class, Earth Science, Physical Science, Inorganic Chemistry and Biochemistry classes.

Dr. Newton was drawn to the study of Chemistry because of the incredible evidence of design. As she continues learning in the field she more deeply affirms that what exists in nature did not come about by random coincidence.

The classroom is not just a place of work for Dr. Newton, but a place to fulfill a calling in her life. She appreciates that other professors in the division also see their position as something more than just a job.

To make learning chemistry fun, Dr. Newton incorporates practicality and competition to keep her students attention. She applies the principals of chemistry to things they will see in daily life, and creates competition through drills that require students to recall information taught in class.
