In nominations, students said of their social work and psychology teacher:
"The professor can sense when students are having a hard time and figures out how to convey the material. The professor also holds study sessions before every test in case anyone needs extra practice with the material."
"This instructor encourages students to enter into lively conversations about the subject material. EVERYONE is encouraged to participate."
"The teacher brings so much enthusiasm to class! Between class, Moodle, and emails, I feel that I am actually a big part of the class rather than just another student."
"She is truly a passionate, caring, intelligent professor that has made a difference in the lives of so many people! She does everything she can to engage with her students."
