Marian DeWane taught AP* chemistry, AP* Environmental Science and AP* Physics at Centennial High School in Boise, Idaho. She has been Teacher of the Year and has her National Board Certification in Chemistry. She has been chosen as a Presidential Scholar Teacher in 2001, 2004, and 2009. In 2009, she also won the Presidential Science Teaching Award. Currently, Marian is an educational consultant for the College Board and teaches online courses for UC Irvine and UCLA.
Marian is involved in the grading of the AP* Chemistry exam and has served as an exam question leader, a table leader and a grader. She has been involved with training consultants for the College Board* on the new curriculum and is a workshop consultant in AP* Chemistry, AP* Environmental Science, STEM, and PreAP Sciences. She has been a National Leadership Trainer for AP* Chemistry and Vertical Teams in Science, a consultant mentor, workshop writer for the new AP* curriculum changes, and question writer for the new exam. She authored two chapters in the new AP* Lab Manual and also authored one of the labs. She co­edited the Special Topics in Chemistry: Equilibrium, edited Special Topics in Chemistry: Thermochemistry, edited Special Topics in Chemistry: Acids and Bases, wrote a chapter in the Curriculum Module on Bonding, and co­authored and edited the chemistry curriculum module Guided Inquiry Activities for the Classroom. She has also authored several manuals to accompany AP* Chemistry Texts and chemistry self study manuals.
