David Haskell, professor of biology, has been named one of "The Most Creative Teachers in the South" by Oxford American magazine. The magazine “… hunted in colleges throughout the region to find influential educators admired by their students and colleagues, whose classrooms serve as forums for social change, whose homes become their classrooms,” in order to choose the teachers featured in the August issue.

Haskell was named along with professors from schools ranging from Centre College to the University of Alabama and from Emory to Auburn. He was singled out for his on-site, hands-on teaching style, rather than abstract lecturing.

"By slowing down and paying attention to things we really understand them," said Haskell. "What I really hope is that the students will leave here with this amazing joy of connecting with the natural world and will be more responsible and live more enriched lives.”
