- About Plattsburgh
My name is Gloria. I received a B.S. in Physics and a minor in Mathematics from SUNY Plattsburgh in December 2004. If you asked me what the most important lesson I received from Plattsburgh was, I would say that Plattsburgh prepared me with a passionate heart and strong desire to advance to the next step of the journey. I had the opportunity to work one-on-one with my physics professors. I appreciated that the program offered me the flexibility and independence to explore physics and mathematics.
After graduation, I studied for my Master's in a one-year Master of Engineering Management Program (MEMP) at Duke University. My classmates comprised top-notch students from around the globe. This past year, I learned essential concepts of entrepreneurship, leadership, creativity, and teamwork. I am continuously seeking for more education and working opportunities to enhance my career. As Benjamin Franklin once said, "An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest."
While at Plattsburgh State I majored in Physics and minored in Music and Mathematics. I spent my free time working in the Northcountry Planetarium under Dr. Glenn Myer, my advisor, and being a Teaching Assistant for introductory Physics and Astronomy classes. I also spent two summers doing research at the Maria Mitchell Observatory in Nantucket, Massachusetts.
After graduating, I attended Stony Brook University. I took graduate physics classes, education classes, and did research at Brookhaven National Laboratory. In December 2005, I graduated with a Masters of Arts in Teaching Physics.
I am currently employed as a teacher at Curtis High School in New York City, teaching both Regents Earth Science and Physics.
