The 2020 Salute to Faculty Excellence Awards Celebration was held Friday, October 23, 2020.
Distinguished Teaching Professor: Margie Tieslau, Ph.D., Associate Professor
Margie Tieslau teaches econometrics and serves as the graduate advisor in the Department of Economics. Teaching and student mentoring are truly her passions.
While at UNT, Margie has won a number of teaching awards including the "Fessor Graham," "University Honor Professor," and "J. H. Shelton Teaching" awards, and she was nominated for the "Minnie Stevens Piper" and "CLASS Advisory Board" teaching awards. But the accomplishments of which she is most proud do not come with a name or a title. They are measured by the looks on the faces of her former students who, after having been out in the "real world," tell her how much of an impact she has had on their lives and thank her for all that she has done for them. She takes great pride in watching her little baby eagles grow into magnificent birds who soar majestically from the nest and go on to live great lives.
