Award recipients help students achieve their personal best
BY RACHELLE COOPER
“Surprised.” That's the reaction Prof. Ruediger Mueller, Languages and Literatures, and graduate teaching assistants Brodie Richards, History, and Heather Davidson, English and Theatre Studies, all had when told they were the recipients of this year's College of Arts teaching excellence awards.
“There are so many good teachers, and when I listen to other people teach, I think: ‘Wow, I wish I could take that course,'” says Mueller, a faculty member in the German studies program. He's more modest about his own courses, but says teaching is definitely the thing that excites him.
“I enjoy being there, and I guess the students can tell that. Even on the days when initially I don't feel like teaching, once I'm in the classroom, it all changes.”
