Keep Kayla At UK: Make the Chemistry Department Great Again

This petition had 44 supporters

Kayla Mahoney is the best chemistry teacher I have had at UK. Last semester I found that my professor was not teaching and rather just reading off of PowerPoints. I love to learn and I feel like I did not learn or have people that truly wanted to help me succeed. As you can imagine, I was very discouraged coming into this semester of chemistry as I didn't think I was going to get the most of my education. However, I got Kayla Mahoney as my professor and everything changed (for the better). Kayla is an amazing teacher and is more than willing to help us learn at any point in time. She makes me, and many others, feel as if she actually wants us to succeed. My grades improved and my love for learning returned. I started to regain my hope in the UK chemistry department, until I was informed Kayla had to leave because UK would not hire her full time due to only having her masters degree and not a Ph.D. Upon acquiring this information I was very upset as I have learned more from Kayla than I have any of the Ph.D.'s in the department. She genuinely cares about her students and their success and her leaving will have a very detrimental effect on general chemistry at UK. Sign this petition to get Kayla to stay and keep the chemistry department at UK better for all!!
