Graduate Teaching Awards
The Outstanding Graduate Student Awards for significant accomplishments in teaching are presented annually by the Graduate Student Government (GSG) and the Office of the Provost.
Nathaniel Bade, doctoral candidate in mathematics
Nathaniel’s teaching philosophy is to empower students and to guide them from passive learners to competent and interested professionals. Over the last three years, he has far exceeded the expectations for a graduate student; he helped lead an innovative undergraduate program, designed and taught undergraduate coding classes, and taught graduate data-analytics workshops, receiving outstanding ratings as an instructor. One nominating professor speaks for his colleagues: “Nate is an innovative teacher and educator and simply one of the best teaching assistants we have had in the mathematics department.”
Ashley Reichelmann, doctoral candidate in sociology
Ashley is regarded as a truly gifted teacher. She has taught three sociology courses at Northeastern, achieving overwhelmingly positive feedback from both students and faculty members. Ashley’s skills include the ability to lecture on complicated materials, to facilitate class discussion in a supportive and inclusive manner, to design syllabi and course assignments that support cumulative and progressive learning of tangible and broadly applicable skills, and to effectively mentor students outside of the classroom.
