We are pleased to announce that Heather Steffen and Alexis Teagarden have received the 2011-2012 English Department Graduate Student Teaching Award!

This is the third year for this department-only award that recognizes and celebrates our department's best graduate student teachers. Both of this year's recipients demonstrate a deep and effective integration of subject-matter knowledge and pedagogical flexibility, and their commitment to their students resonates throughout their teaching.  

Heather Steffen, who is pursuing a PhD in Literary and Cultural Studies, will be the department's nominee for the Dietrich College Graduate Student Teaching Award; Alexis Teagarden, who is pursuing a PhD in Rhetoric, will be the department's nominee for the University Graduate Student Teaching Award.

Congratulations, Heather and Alexis.
