Graduate Student Teacher of the Year
Sandra Lundell is a graduate student in the Department of Chemistry at Utah State University, studying Physical Chemistry with an emphasis in theoretical computation. She received a B.A. in Chemistry at Idaho State University in 2014 before moving to Logan to pursue her graduate studies. Her first taste of teaching at a university level was at Idaho State and she knew she would want to continue in that path at USU. Since becoming an Aggie, she has taught over a dozen chemistry labs and two dozen general chemistry recitations. Last year, she received the Marjorie H. Gardner Teaching Award, which is given to a graduate student each year in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry for excellence in teaching. In the fall of 2017, she had the privilege and pleasure of instructing CHEM 1110: General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry. At home, Sandra loves to spend time with her beautiful wife, Katie, and their three fur-babies, Niko, Alecs, and Rarity.
