Slightly more than half of all chemistry teachers in the United States are female, and 93 percent
are white, as shown in Table 1. Roughly half have a master’s degree. Judging by the age of
chemistry teachers, it appears that as many as one-third may be nearing retirement in the next 10
Roughly one-third of those who teach chemistry have three or more preparations a day; either
different levels of chemistry, other sciences, or subjects outside of science.
In general, chemistry teachers appear to be well prepared in terms of the number of college
chemistry courses they have taken. Two-thirds of them have taken six or more courses in the
subject, suggesting the equivalent of at least a minor. (See Table 2.) Virtually all (97 percent)
have taken at least three chemistry courses. It is also clear that chemistry teachers are generally
better prepared in their own subject than in other science disciplines; e.g., life science or physics.
