Congratulations to Dr. Carolina Acosta-Alzuru on being named one of three nationalist finalists in the 2013 Scripps Howard Foundation Journalism & Mass Communication Teacher of the Year Award competition.
The competition recognizes excellence in teaching in areas like innovative teaching practices, influences on curriculum, mentoring of students and faculty, leadership in educational activities and industry engagement inside and outside the classroom.
“I'm happily shocked with the news,” says Dr. Acosta-Alzuru. “Teaching is something I do with great respect and responsibility. Being a finalist for this award is a wonderful stimulus to continue doing my best in the classroom.”
The winner will be announced in March and will be awarded at the 2014 AEJMC Conference in Montreal, Canada in August 2014.
