Courtenay Daum receives Best Teacher Award from Colorado State University Alumni Association

Congratulations to Professor Courtenay Daum for being named a 2014 Best Teacher Award recipient by the Colorado State University Alumni Association.  Professor Daum, who also received the CLA Excellence in Teaching Award in 2008, has an abiding commitment to teaching and to her students. A former student wrote that “Professor Daum was absolutely amazing,” while another noted that “Dr. Daum is an exceptional professor.”  Another former student commented that her “influence on my success is unmeasurable, and I truly feel that I would not be where I am today without her inspiring presence.” Yet another said that she “teaches her students how to think, not what to think. Our class discussions were dynamic, thoughtful, and captured what it means to truly teach.”

Professor Daum and the other Best Teacher Award recipients will be recognized in a ceremony on Monday, April 28th, at the Drake Center in Fort Collins.
