I can't use stood out here so I used highlighted. I haven't found good synonyms without the word "stood", I really appreciate suggestions without this word.

.In the subjects I directed, she highlighted for her capacity to innovate and a characteristic curiosity to explore beyond the instruction.

    No, it isn't. Something that stands out is easily noticeable (like a shape literally 'standing out' from a flat surface). If you highlight something, you do something to make it noticeable (like shining a light on it). You could say she was conspicuous or was notable. – Kate Bunting Nov 19 '20 at 15:37
  • In addition perhaps she shone would work although perhaps slightly informal. – mdewey Nov 19 '20 at 16:09
  • I decided to rewrite it this way, but I am not sure if the meaning is preserved? : In the subjects I taught her, her capacity to innovate and a characteristic curiosity to explore beyond the instruction often called my attention.. – pepo Nov 19 '20 at 18:13
