The Quantum Pontiff

Teacher of the Year

For a second straight year, the winner of the U.S. Teacher of the Year, is a University of Washington graduate. Of course I’m not supposed to say that, as not bragging is an sacred northwest tradition. (Did you know that the University of Washington receives the second most federal research funding of any institute in the United States?)


The teacher who won the award is Michael Geisen, who teaches in Prineville, Oregon, wish is just north and east of Bend, OR. Dude, not only is he an awesome science teacher, but he also gets to live in a sweet locale. Bend is an outdoor enthusiasts dreamland, but don’t tell anyone I told you because already too many people have moved there from the city :)

    Yup. And No. 1 is Johns Hopkins (one of my alma maters) but not because of their world-famous Med School. Rather it is because of the amazingly coolApplied Physics Lab.
