It’s an honor to learn that I've been awarded this year’s Zebulon Pearce Teaching Award in the Humanities at Arizona State University. And it’s a thrill any year to learn that your university has a teaching award honoring the man who brought beer to Mesa, AZ! Seriously, I’m very grateful to those who nominated me and who took time to write in support. Working with students who have such talent, energy, and hope, and trying to help them find ways to hone, channel, and express them, is an amazing gift. It's a privilege to work in higher education and for ASU.
