Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) contribute significantly to UVM's teaching mission, carrying important and often complex teaching responsibilities. They merit recognition for their dedication and for the important contributions they make to the teaching of undergraduates at UVM. The Graduate Teaching Assistant of the Year Award recognizes annually the accomplishments of GTAs who have demonstrated unusual excellence and creativity in their teaching and commitment to student learning.
A reception to honor the winner of the Graduate Teaching Assistant of the Year Award is held each Spring where the winner is announced and receives a subscription to a professional journal of his or her choice in addition to the award. While only one GTA is chosen to receive the Graduate Teaching Assistant of the Year Award, the nominees from each department are also honored and each receives a commemorative citation.
Congratulations to our most recent winners:

Amy is a third-year student in the Clinical Training Program, and is interested in studying risk and protective factors for individuals who experience high levels of stress in childhood and adolescence. Her current work investigates how factors such as coping and competence can influence the associations between stressful life events and internalizing symptoms, as well as examining how physiological reactivity to stress is involved in these associations.
