The SHP Excellence in Education Award honors faculty members who have demonstrated superlative commitment to the teaching mission, and may recognize efforts spanning a broad range of activities including traditional instruction, advising, mentoring, training and outreach activities.

Dr. Crystal Gateley has designed and/or taught fifteen different courses in her program’s professional curriculum. She is consistently sought by students for her advice and mentorship, and she readily takes on every opportunity to recruit, advise and otherwise support the success of current and future students in the program.

Her nominator wrote: “what makes her stand out is her consistent and deliberate approach to improving as an educator. She seeks training, development and furthered her education on her own time to help her develop as an educator and scholar. She is a well-respected member of our faculty who year after year demonstrates excellence in education that is recognized by students and peers.”

Congratulations, Dr. Gateley!
