Meet WendyI first became an AAPT member in 1995 while in graduate school, at the University of Colorado, after winning a free membership. My department had kindly nominated me for a graduate teacher award. I had previously attended a few AAPT meetings as an undergrad, but really had no special connection to AAPT nor did I understand how AAPT could support my teaching efforts. But a free membership did the trick and my AAPT identity began to take shape. As an adjunct faculty for seven years I maintained my membership and enjoyed my copies of The Physics Teacher, the calendar and annual poster!
