Meet BethI joined AAPT in 1997 when I started my teaching career at Colgate University. I have stayed with both of these organizations for the last 25 years. I’ve had many opportunities to visit and live in other areas of the world, taking students on two extended study trips to learn about renewable energy in Norway and two semester-long trips to Cardiff, Wales. I also served as a Fulbright fellow for a year, teaching and conducting research in Mbarara, Uganda. I have been slowly teaching my way through the undergraduate physics curriculum—I finally got a chance to teach quantum mechanics. Soon, I hope to teach classical mechanics and our math methods course.
