In fall 2017 we received 41 nominations for Appreciation Awards! We are glad so many SSD students had great experiences with faculty and staff in the fall semester and took the time to send in their nominations. The full list of nominees is available in PDF form at the following link SSD Appreciation Award List Fall 2017 . The full list of past nominees is available on the SSD Appreciation Award page of our website.
Here are some excerpts from students’ nominations:
“They dedicated their time and effort to help me better myself this semester and in the long run, they changed my life”
“This individual showed the deepest level of compassion while still upholding high expectations. His willingness to listen, consider all I had to say, beyond just my accommodation letter, and talk through and find resolutions, made me feel valued and cared for. I also know that by experiencing his excellence, his personal personality, and “problem” solving skills…he will be successful at anything he puts his mind to. I grew to feel even stronger about my own abilities and worth in life through my time shared with him. An above and beyond, greater citizen. Thank you!”
“He is a great teacher and I learned a ton in his class because he’s so interesting. He accommodated me quite well and he’s very understanding. I wish more teachers understood other people with different multi-facets like he does.”
We are grateful to have so many wonderful faculty and staff who truly make a difference in the lives of their students!
