ATLANTA—Mathematics and Statistics Associate Professor Valerie Miller took home the Distinguished Teaching Award at the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) Southeastern Section’s 96th Annual Meeting.
“I am profoundly and deeply honored to have received this award,” said Miller. “To have been found to be distinguished in my teaching by my peers and students is extremely humbling.”
MAA sections all over the country honor professors whose teaching practices and research have positively transformed the classroom each year.
Upon receiving sectional recognition, each of the MAA Section award recipients become candidates for national awards within the organization.
“The Department of Mathematics and Statistics ensures student success through traditional as well as innovative classroom teachings, engaging learning opportunities, one-on-one guidance and supportive programming,” said Chair Guantao Chen. “The department consists of a nationally recognized mathematics team and Dr. Valerie Miller is certainly one of our best.”
Michael Stewart, the department’s Director of Undergraduate Studies, added, “Miller has been integral to the development and maintenance of high quality instruction in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. While she maintains high academic standards, her evident commitment to her students and the respect that she inspires allow her to push her students to excel.”
