AAPT Member Spotlight
Meet PhoebeAlong with being naturally curious, having a supportive network of teachers and professors has made all the difference in my education. I had always felt comfortable asking questions and assured them that I would be a better student and scientist when I walked away from our discussions. I want all students to have that supportive, encouraging community, allowing them to be as inquisitive as they wish. That is why I have loved being a member of AAPT. This community of educators that prioritize the physics they are teaching and their students' well-being is such a special place that deserves to be celebrated.
