The Mathematics Department announces the 2009 Adjunct Excellence in Teaching Award recipient, Jeanette Funkhauser. Jan began teaching at MCC in September 1999. Since then, she has taught a wide range of courses and has never backed away from taking on a new course. Jan has a sincere desire for her students to do well and helps to make this possible by regularly holding a few office hours per week. Jan has truly been an asset to the Mathematics Department and is very deserving of recognition with this award.
