The American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) recently announced recipients
of the 2013 Barbara Lotze Scholarship for Future Teachers including CSU's own Angela
Supported by an endowment funded by AAPT Member Barbara Lotze, the scholarship provides
a $2,000 stipend to outstanding future high school physics teachers.
Ms. Moore is a member of the Class of 2014 at Chicago State University. A non-traditional
student, she has been a PhysTec fellow, a Robert Noyce Intern and scholar, received
an award for her presentation at an APS meeting (based on research with a CERN project);
and worked as a teacher and teacher’s assistant for Chicago State University's CAT’s
(Cougar Academy for Teachers), a summer enrichment program for junior high school
Mel Sabella, Professor for Physics and Chair of the Department of Chemistry, Physics,
and Engineering Studies at Chicago State University said, “Angela is one of the brightest,
most motivated students I know but her path toward her degree has been filled with
major challenges and obstacles. She is the one responsible for taking care of her
family because, unfortunately, there is no one else who can take on most of these
responsibilities. Angela often shares details with me and I am constantly amazed at
what she has accomplished and I am amazed by her perseverance. She never gives up
and is now quite close to finishing her degree and obtaining her certification.”
“I think Angela is going to make a major impact in her community on the south side
of Chicago and will be a role model to many students underrepresented in the sciences.
In addition, Angela can offer motivation and guidance to students who encounter extreme
obstacles, like she has, which unfortunately are quite common in the communities where
she will most likely be employed.”
