Congratulations to Jiyoung Lee, associate professor, environmental health sciences, who received the Plimpton Outstanding Teaching Award presented by the College of Food, Agriculture and Environmental Science (CFAES).

“I’m just humbled and thankful to be receiving this award, it means a lot to me,” said Lee, who holds a 30 percent appointment with CFAES. “It motivates me to think about better ways to teach in class and advise my graduate and undergraduate students. It also makes me seek more effective ways to help students develop critical thinking skills, use their creativity, equip them with valuable knowledge and become team players. I believe learning should be fun.”
