2013 Recipient Statements
"It is my desire to ease the administrative burden on faculty and allow them the opportunity to bring creativity and innovation into their classrooms. Encouraging, empowering, and supporting their initiatives is my contribution to the success of students, faculty, and the institution."
"In Harry Potter, Mad-Eye Moody says to his students, “Constant Vigilance!” That’s what I need. Who’s in my room now? What innovations can I try? What am I missing? The worst thing I can do is let my guard down and miss the opportunity to help students reach their goals."
"Maya Angelou said, 'A bird does not sing because it has an answer; it sings because it has a song.' As a developmental writing teacher, my job is to help students find their song, believe in their right to sing it and then help them discover—through writing—how to sing it well."
