UW CSE honors “Inspirational Teachers”

Each year, UW CSE invites students to nominate “inspirational teachers” from secondary school or community college – teachers who shaped their perceptions of themselves as students.  We host those teachers, their spouses/guests, and the students who nominated them at a dinner in the Allen Center.  We have three goals:  to honor the teachers for their contributions; to re-acquaint them with some of their favorite students; and to encourage them to send us more great students!

Photos from this year’s “Inspirational Teacher” dinner may be found here.
