Boyd, Ingram win Distinguished Teaching awards

5/18/2007 | By: Staff Report  |

Seth Boyd, a doctoral student in the English Department's Composition and Rhetoric program, has served as a T.A. at the University for four years.

After two years teaching English 101 and 102 for the Core Writing Program, Boyd moved to the Core Humanities Program where after three semesters as a discussion leader, he is now teaching his own section of CH 203.  

This fall, Boyd will return to the Core Writing Program and teach classes in the Living Learning Communities program. Each summer, Boyd teaches writing courses at St. Paul's School's Advanced Studies Program in Concord, N.H.

Kate Ingram grew up in Tampa, Fla. where she spent many a muggy day climbing trees and catching lizards. Her propensity for the study of life developed early on and was honed into a career goal at Furman University in South Carolina.  

Here, through her experience with devoted mentors, she decided that the highest form of personal satisfaction and service to society coincide in the role of "teacher".  

To balance out her pedagogical and master's thesis-writing endeavors, Ingram also pursues swing and salsa dancing, painting, all manner of outdoor excursions and the occasional zealous game of ping-pong.

Boyd and Ingram were also honored at a May 2 reception along with other top teaching assistants.
