Connell News


Amanda Lulloff, M.S./Ph.D. ’16, and Sabra Sullivan, M.S. ’13, received Donald J. White Teaching Excellence Awards at a ceremony in Gasson 100 on May 3. The Donald J. White Awards recognize graduate teaching fellows and teaching assistants who distinguished themselves in classroom instruction.

Lulloff, a practicing pediatric oncology nurse, served as a teaching assistant for Assistant Professor Nancy Allen’s Pharmacology and Nutrition Therapies course and Assistant Professor Natalie McClain’s Child Health Nursing Theory course. She was cited for outstanding lectures on oncology pharmacology and medication calculations, as well as passing on her firsthand knowledge of treating children undergoing bone marrow transplants.

Sullivan served as a teaching assistant in Professor Judith Vessey’s Nursing Health Assessment Across the Life Span course, the first major theory course in the nursing curriculum, and was noted for her facility in helping students understand where they went wrong on homework assignments, and for crafting an exam-review case study that incorporated all of the course’s major themes.
