"The Exercise Science program at LSSU definitely prepared me for a career in the clinical field. The background experiences that I attained from my placements and internships helped me spearhead the development of a cardiac rehab program in Sault Ste Maire, ON. I feel that my degree at LSSU paved the way for my career today."

CRITERIA: Please write an essay supporting your nomination by addressing as may of these criteria as possible.

The Distinguished Teacher Award was established at Lake Superior State University in 1958. It is the most prestigious award that can be bestowed upon an LSSU faculty member. It is also typically a once-in-a-lifetime recognition of outstanding achievement as a teacher.

A Distinguished Teacher at LSSU may be popular—both among students and faculty colleagues—but popularity is not what distinguishes the Distinguished Teacher. A Distinguished Teacher

  • demonstrates command of his or her subject matter,
  • explains difficult concepts clearly,
  • utilizes creative and innovative methods in order to engage students,
  • generates excitement and enthusiasm for the subject,
  • treats students fairly and respectfully,
  • assists students both inside and outside the classroom,
  • maintains challenging standards,
  • inspires students to expect more of themselves, and
  • serves as a good role model for students, faculty colleagues, and others.

A Distinguished Teacher will display all of these individual characteristics in a way that touches and changes lives. Students will likely be forever grateful to a Distinguished Teacher, for this person will have expanded their horizons and helped them realize more of their potential.
