AAPT Member Spotlight
Meet StephanieWhen I began my undergraduate degree, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do. I knew I loved space as a kid, so I started with Astronomy, and eventually double-majored in physics. I loved the content but definitely felt a struggle feeling liked I belonged in the larger physics world. Because I was a first-generation low-income college student, I had to work through my degree, often multiple jobs. I was a really good nanny, and this eventually lead me into getting involved in the physics departments’ summer camps at University of Maryland. This experience is what really launched my physics teaching/education career.
