Jonna Gentry, a ninth grade earth science teacher at Green Mountain High School in Lakewood, Colo., has been named the 2012 AAPG Earth Science Teacher of the Year.

AAPG’s TOTY award, funded annually by the AAPG Foundation, is a $5,000 prize that will be split into two parts: half is designated for Gentry’s personal use, and half goes to Green Mountain High School for educational use under Gentry’s supervision.

Gentry teaches earth science at both the regular and honors level at her school, as well as a section of “Beginning Robotics,” which she said allows her to also see the world from an engineer’s perspective.

“Being recognized for the time and energy that teaching requires is a great honor,” Gentry said. “This award is an encouragement that my hard work and passion for my career have been well worth the time.”

Gentry, nominated for TOTY by the Rocky Mountain Association of Geologists, received a bachelor of science degree in physical science with a double minor in chemistry and biochemistry from Colorado State University. For the past several years she has served as a volunteer and on the board of directors for the Friends of Dinosaur Ridge in Morrison, Colo.

Gentry will receive an all-expense paid trip to the AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition in Long Beach on April 22-25, where she will be presented with her award at the All-Convention Luncheon.

An interview with Gentry will be featured in the April convention issue of the EXPLORER.
