Photos of IE Teacher Orientation 2014
Many thanks to all the teachers who attended the annual AGU orientation for teachers, and those who made fantastic contributions through engaging presentations. I can’t think of a more energizing way to begin the academic year. We are particularly grateful to Tom Anderson for his generous talk on techniques that teachers can employ to deal with stress. We are grieving his premature passing after hearing, on Thursday morning, that he passed away. He will be missed by all in the AGU community for his sincerity, professionalism, gentle smile, and willingness to go that extra mile.
