Outstanding New Teacher

Congratulations to Simonne Horwitz who has just received the Provost's Award for Outstanding New Teacher from the Vice-Provost of Teaching and Learning. She will receive the award at a Celebration of Teaching on April 27th at the Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching Excellence. Simonne was hired as tenure-track faculty in 2008 and has never failed to impress us with her energy, enthusiasm and dedication to her students.

For students interested in taking courses with the Outstanding Professor Horwitz, she will be teaching an exciting line-up of courses in 2011-12: Hist 245 (African History: An Introduction), Hist 303 (Sex, Gender and Sexuality in Africa) and Hist 397 (Approaches to History). And as it turns out, we've just started departmental advising this week...

Congratulations, Simonne, on this much-deserved honour!
