Two SFU professors, David Hannah and Derek Yee, have just been selected as winners of the annual TD Canada Trust distinguished teaching award in the Faculty of Business Administration.  Congratulations to David and Derek! Here is the link to the Nov. 3 Press Release.

The recognition of these professors reminds us that we have all had teachers who have inspired us. As we begin this new forum for the discussion of teaching and learning, lets exchange some thoughts on those special people in our lives.

I can begin by talking about my music teacher, Mr. Davies. In a Welsh school, music was very important. Mr. Davies inspired us with his love of music, his gentle manner and his wicked sense of humour.  Does a teacher need more?
