AAPT: American Association of Physics Teachers

AAPT Member Spotlight

Meet Angela

So how did I end up as an AAPT member? One major factor is that I had an amazing high school physics teacher whose name was Michael Lampert. Mr. Lampert made physics fun and encouraged me to major in physics in college. He also worked with me to make up work when some difficult things going on in my family meant that I skipped class all the time (my senior award was “most likely to be gone on a test day”). I wouldn’t have thought to major in physics in college without him. I then attended Seattle Pacific University and was one of the very first undergraduate Learning Assistants there, working with Stamatis Vokos and Lane Seeley. After getting into high energy physics research, I accepted an offer to attend UC Berkeley for my PhD in physics.
