Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Teaching
Teaching Medal Award Winner
An associate professor of mathematics and UH faculty member for more than 30 years, Sheila Yoder makes a discipline that most students find very challenging “fun and interesting.”
In addition to bringing in models to help visualize complex mathematical concepts, she provides the big picture on the relationship of mathematics to daily life.
Her students praise her tremendous patience and skill in simplifying often hard-to-understand topics. Students praise her as “thoughtful and sensitive” on personal matters and appreciate the interest she takes in them as individuals.
The Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Teaching is awarded by the Board of Regents as tribute to faculty members who exhibit an extraordinary level of subject mastery and scholarship, teaching effectiveness and creativity and personal values that benefit students. The board also awards the Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Research.
