GSE Teaching Award
The 2006 recipient of the Graduate School of Education’s Excellence in Teaching Award, presented by the GSE Student Affairs Committee, is Dr. Jeanne Stanley, an adjunct professor in GSE’s Foundations and Practices in Education Division. The award will be presented at the school commencement ceremony on May 15.
For this award, GSE singles out those who have “a strong commitment to teaching and learning,” who demonstrate an interest and enthusiasm for both the course material and for the students, and who are intellectually challenging and stimulating.
An expert on community and sociocultural psychology, Dr. Stanley is known among her students for her openness, humor, resourcefulness, accessibility, and insight. Her interactive, hands-on teaching style challenges students to question their intellectual and personal assumptions and prepares them for clinical and academic settings, where they will be working with diverse populations. Highly respected as a professor and a mentor, Dr. Stanley is dedicated to her students, providing them not only with rigorous and thought-provoking coursework but serving as an advocate and counselor during and after studies with her.
Dr. Stanley received her B.A. degree in psychology from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, and both her M.S.Ed. in psychological services and her Ph.D. in professional and scientific psychology-counseling from Penn.
