Ms. Carey Hancey
Hello! I come to Manassas City Public Schools to give back to the district that laid my academic foundation. It is true that I attended Baldwin Elementary School, Dean Middle School (yes, it was once a middle school!), and Osbourn High School. From there, I went to Virginia Tech.
I have a bachelor's degree in chemistry and biochemistry with a minor in biology from Virginia Tech (Distinct Honors, Commonwealth Scholar). I continued my education for six years as a doctoral candidate in biological chemistry at Penn State University. At Penn State I taught chemistry lab while researching enzymology and kinetics. This project was a collaborative effort with Stanford University and the NIH.
I truly have an immense passion for the sciences and math. I have instructed many gifted students in both subjects. In doing so, I know the importance of critical thinking skills and the ability to be innovative.
I am very excited to be able to lead the IMS program and share my expertise in both content and research with these talented students.
When I am not coaching or instructing, I enjoy college football (GO HOKIES!!!), cooking, drumming, traveling, and strength training.
