Three graduate students earn Physical Sciences Teaching Prizes

The winners of 2012 Physical Sciences Teaching Prizes are Mijo Simunovic, chemistry; Markus Kliegl, math; and Judith Kamm, chemistry. 

The prizes are offered annually and jointly by the Physical Sciences Collegiate Division and the graduate Division of Physical Sciences, to graduate students in recognition of exceptional teaching in undergraduate physical sciences classes. The award includes $750 and a certificate.

“This year the Physical Sciences Collegiate Division received nominations in support of numerous graduate students who have excelled in teaching undergraduate courses,” said John Frederick, master of the Physical Sciences Collegiate Division. “All of the graduate students who were nominated have shown tremendous energy in the classroom and a willingness to devote extra effort in interacting with students.”
