Model of Teaching Excellence

Congratulations to Tim Curdt, M.A. ’90, who has been recognized with the Emerson Excellence in Teaching Award. Mr. Curdt is a passionate educator who serves as Director of SLUH’s Learning Center, Freshman Class Moderator and English teacher.

Each year, Emerson recognizes more than 100 educators in the St. Louis metropolitan area – from kindergarten teachers to college professors – who are examples of excellence in their field. Awards are given during Emerson’s Excellence in Teaching reception each November.


“For over 20 years I have dedicated my professional life, and a great deal of my personal and spiritual life, to SLUH and received far more than I have given. I am blessed to work with the faculty and staff—many of whom have become my closest friends—the administrators who support us all in our mission-based work with sensitivity and care, and the opportunity to teach and mentor the students all help give my life meaning and purpose.

“SLUH’s Ignatian vision of fostering continual self-examination in the context of God’s abundant, intimate love sustains me in my work to cultivate in myself and my students the most intellectually-curious, loving, and spiritually earnest daily work environment possible. Add to that vision the genuine, humble people I get to work with—people who fill my life with such laughter and love—and you end up with a really special place.”
