I'm incredibly grateful to have been recognized at UA for my teaching. Each year the Chair reads through teaching evaluations and comments to determine a single graduate student who demonstrated dedication and passion for teaching. I'm humbled to say that I was selected this year, after only one full year of teaching here.
I do love teaching, and the award is made more special being surrounded by other graduate students who are equally dedicated to what we do for the undergrads here. If I look embarrassed, I am, but Janis's kind remarks meant a lot!
