Teaching Awards

Teaching Awards

More than just a job, teaching is a vocation and is central to who I am. I have been fortunate to receive opportunities to grow as an educator and recognition for effective teaching in the past.

Future Faculty Teaching Fellowship

The University Graduate School, Indiana University, AY 2018-2019

The Future Faculty Teaching Fellowship (FFTF) program recognizes the past performance of advanced doctoral candidates from Indiana University Bloomington and their future potential as educators and offers the opportunity to expand teaching skills through career development and hands-on experience at regional Indiana University campuses and Butler University. The fellowship is highly competitive, but I received this fellowship and taught a 2-2 load through it at Indiana University South Bend.

Carl H. Ziegler Teaching Award

Collins Living-Learning Center, Indiana University Bloomington, Spring 2014

In Spring 2014, I taught a special seminar course for one of the living-learning communities on campus at Indiana University Bloomington, Collins. A committee of students and faculty award one instructor per semester a teaching award, based on student nominations, and I received the honor.

This explanation of the program courses and photo of my class appeared in the Collins Living-Learning Center's annual report for AY 2013-2014.
