Yay, I get to teach!!!

I’ve been awarded a teaching assistant position, woot!

I suspect the selection process was quite competitive; on a campus where the grad student:undergrad ratio is 1:3, and the total student population is approximately 1500, there aren’t that many TA jobs to go around.  I was a little worried that, because I’m a new kid on campus and haven’t taken any courses there, I would be overlooked.   I’m a good and experienced teacher, though…which seems to have been recognized.  I’m very thankful for this opportunity, and am totes looking forward to it (even the marking!!!)


I’ll be assisting with an introductory (second-year) zoology lab.   Yay for zoology!!!
