I was honored to be awarded the 2022 C&IS Board of Visitors Award for Teaching Excellence. This award is given annually to a C&IS faculty member who is innovative and effective in teaching a wide range of courses, prioritizes diversity in teaching, and demonstrates a commitment to student engagement and mentorship beyond the classroom.
This was a special award for me. I love the students here at the University of Alabama and making meaningful connections with them is some of the most rewarding work I get to do. Thank you to the award committee and, of course, to all of the students who go out in the world and do the hard work with their communities.
