Fri, Sept 28, 2012 – One of the first Teacher Goody Awards will be presented to Professor Ravi Aron PhD, who teaches Digital Marketplace at Johns Hopkins Carey School of Business in Baltimore, MD. The award will be presented by Global MBA student and Goody Awards Intern Tim Sissons, who brings a global prospective from New Zealand. Tim explained, “I'm delighted that Professor Aron is to be awarded one of the first Teacher Goody Awards. He brings an energy and enthusiasm to his classroom that students can actually feel. Professor Aron makes the science accessible, the key concepts understandable and the learning fun. His teaching is an inspiration as you leave the classroom not only with an understanding of the material, but a real sense of how the concepts can and are applied.”
Mon, Oct 1, 2012 - A second #TeacherGoody Award will be presented to Johns Hopkins University Professor and Anthropology Department Chair Niloofar Haeri PhD by Sophmore Nicole Bakabania and Goody Awards Intern. Nicole described why she selected her professor for this honor, "Professor Haeri is a professor who loves to learn the material just as much as she loves teaching it. Her excitement and creativity when in her Anthropology courses, and her kindness and genuine love for the subject makes her more than fitting to receive a Teacher Goody Award."
