More than 500 Georgia State graduate students were contacted and asked to nominate their graduate pedagogical mentor. The nominations were then considered and voted on by Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) faculty members.

Stombler’s students call her a valuable resource, praising her ability to provide support and effective feedback for improving their classrooms.

Stombler classifies the work she does to develop the Sociology Department’s graduate-teacher-training program as challenging but well worth it.

“It is truly an honor to have been selected,” said Stombler. “This award acknowledges the intense work that goes into training the next generation of teachers and I am so appreciative that the university, through the top-notch Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, has chosen to recognize these efforts.”

She added, “When I think about what it means to be a mentor, I can say with confidence that the best part is the opportunity to rejoice in the success of your mentees.”
