Meet BrianI had a super-supportive family and an amazing high school physics teacher, and an excellent college advisor that inspired my love for physics. I ended up in teaching at least partly because of a talk Sheila Tobias gave at the University of Utah during my master’s work, which led me to five years of teaching high school and then subsequent PhD research at Utah State and a job at Ricks College that turned into BYU-Idaho underneath me.
