Dr. Jennifer Szydlik wins 2010 UW System Regents' Teaching Excellence Award

The University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents has announced the recipients of the Regents’ 18th annual Teaching Excellence Awards. On Aug. 20, two professors and one academic department will receive the UW System's highest recognition bestowed on members of its faculty and academic staff for outstanding career achievements in teaching.

Dr. Szydlik, an award-winning professor of mathematics, joined the UW-Oshkosh faculty in 1995. She believes mathematics is “as natural for us to create and love” as art, music, or literature. Students who confess to a phobia of math leave her classes not only with a newfound appreciation of the beauty and logic behind mathematics, but also with skills widely applicable to life and learning. She received distinguished teaching awards from UW-Oshkosh in 2004 and from the Wisconsin Section of the Mathematical Association of America in 2009. A nationally recognized researcher and author, Dr. Szydlik is noted for co-authoring a McGraw-Hill Company series of textbooks for prospective elementary and middle school teachers.
