Congratulations to Theresa Gozzo who was honored for her achievements in teaching, mentoring, and public service with an Excellence in Teaching Award at the 2023 Awards of Excellence ceremony on June 8. The Excellence in Teaching Award is among the highest teaching recognition at the University of Washington.
Gozzo’s primary goal is to create more productive and positive learning experiences by establishing a classroom where students spend less time struggling alone. In this positive environment, Gozzo fosters each student’s growth as a chemist by sharing her own knowledge of the material, offering encouragement and emphasizing that mistakes are a valuable part of growth.
Gozzo is a doctoral candidate in the group of Associate Professor Matthew Bush.
