Heather Klomhaus, PhD, English, Berkeley College School of Liberal Arts, received the Faculty of the Year award for Outstanding Teaching during a dinner reception held at Battery Gardens on November 3, 2016, in Manhattan, NY. A resident of Mahopac, NY, Dr. Klomhaus was among 18 Berkeley College faculty members and fellow professionals who were recognized by students and colleagues for their contributions to student-centered learning in exceptional ways.
“These annual awards recognize faculty members who serve as role models in demonstrating commitment to the success of Berkeley College students,” said Beth M. Castiglia, PhD, Provost, Berkeley College. “We know they are successful because of their love of teaching. The feedback from their students and colleagues reflect this.”
“I love sharing the things I love best in literature, art, film, language and philosophy,” Dr. Klomhaus said. “Then, I am even more motivated when I see students engage with, interpret and challenge the material, ideas and concepts I introduce. In every course I have taught at Berkeley College, I have learned something new from my students.”
Other recipients of the Faculty of the Year award for Outstanding Teaching included Carlos Cruz, Chair, Graphic Design, Berkeley College School of Professional Studies; Mandanna Ganapathy, MD, Health Sciences, Berkeley College School of Health Studies; Isben Jeudy, Chair, Developmental Mathematics, Developmental Education; and LaToya Trowers-Bell, EdD, Chair, Health Services Administration, Larry L.
