The Distinguished Teacher Award Committee is proud to announce Dr. Eric Warner as the 2021-2022 winner. Dr. Warner is an Associate Professor of Spanish and French in the Department of English, Literature, and World Languages and has been at Ferris since 2009. The committee was thoroughly impressed with both Dr. Warner's teaching credential, as well as, his performance in the classroom. During the committee's classroom observations, Dr. Warner demonstrated thoughtful engagement with his students and a clear passion for what he teaches. Dr. Warner is an excellent example of the Ferris faculty group and is most deserving of this year's award. Congratulations, Dr. Eric Warner, recipient of the 2021-2022 Distinguished Teacher Award!
