Best Professor

Gold Winner Roberta Barker

Silver Winner Daniel Brandes

Bronze Winner Helene Deacon

Dal theatre prof Roberta Barker seems downright embarrassed to win the gold---again. “I have a lot of wonderful colleagues, so I feel guilty,” she explains. “I teach a lot of required classes, and I have these amazing students.” Well, there’s no better way to bypass this self-effacing filter than by going to the sometimes-brutal, where dozens of comments like “Roberta is the reason why I want to become a teacher; she is passionate, easy to talk to and knows her stuff.” King’s prof Daniel Brandes, who teaches metaphysics and religion, takes the silver, while Dal psychology prof Helene Deacon wins the bronze.
