Our own Dr. Michelle Searle, Ed’99, MEd’08, PhD’13, is the 2022 recipient of the Alumni Award for Excellence in Teaching. The Queen’s University Alumni Association presents the award to a Queen’s teacher who shows outstanding knowledge, teaching ability, and accessibility to students.

Searle has decades of teaching experience including professional work overseas in Colombia, Spain, Morocco, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, and Vietnam.

Doctoral student Katrina Carbone, who nominated Searle, feels these professional experiences around the world and in national classrooms help Searle bring unique perspectives into the classroom.

“I quickly became inspired by Michelle’s outstanding knowledge, teaching ability, and commitment to students,” says Carbone.

Congratulations to Dr. Searle! You can read all about Michelle Searle’s nomination and award on the Alumni website.
