Isn't she grand? Piano student Leslie Chen took the Convocation Hall stage Feb. 4 as part of the Monday Music at Noon concert series.
The University of Alberta added to its Canada-leading number of 3M Teaching Fellows with the announcement that Kim Fordham Misfeldt and Heather Zwicker have been added to the list, which now stands at 40.
Zwicker, a professor in the Department of English and Film Studies and vice-dean in the Faculty of Arts, says her affection for teaching began somewhat as a self-fulfilling prophecy, as she remembers tinkering with her answers while working with her high school’s career-assessment tool until it consistently began to churn out “teacher.”
“I think I’ve always wanted to be a teacher,” said Zwicker, who has been lecturing for 20 years at the U of A. “I care about teaching, so I read in the area and I love to watch other people teach. I think the U of A is great at opening up other teachers’ classrooms, and the Faculty of Arts is amazing in terms of sharing the work people are doing.”
