Meet BradLike undoubtedly many AAPT members, my first high school physics class was an awakening. Finally, I was someplace where all of the ideas that had been half-formed in my mind were discussed in a logical, organized way. My teacher, David Jones, was only a few years older than us, and his enthusiasm and excitement in the classroom for two years helped solidify that physics was what I wanted to study. I attended the University of Rochester as an undergraduate, basically because that was his alma mater.
