The Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTEC) named Upper School physics teacher Adam Pullen a local teacher of the year.
The award is designed to highlight the impact of recent graduates from physics teacher preparation programs in the classroom. Each of the winners was nominated by the PhysTEC member institution from which they graduated or received their teaching credentials.
Pullen, who joined the Westminster faculty in 2017, was nominated by the University of West Georgia.
PhysTEC, led by the American Physical Society (APS) and the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), aims to improve the education of future physics teachers by transforming physics departments, creating successful models for physics teacher education programs, and disseminating best practices.
