Today was the first day of orientation. I learned many new things already, but at least one prevailing opinion has been reinforced: BTR is legit.
I was so impressed with the diverse array of backgrounds and experiences, as well as the uniformly high caliber and holistic commitment to teaching of the fellow residents in my Cohort. My one other H.S. Physics resident was a doctoral student in optics at Stanford. There’s a resident turning down med schools to teach Chemistry. A trial lawyer changing careers to teach English. The list of collective accomplishments by this group goes on, and to top it off I don’t think I have been in a more diverse array of people since NASA FIRST.
