Since Fall 2017, I have been a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) at UCF for more than 13 courses in the Political Science Department. I was very pleased to have received the College of Sciences’ Honorable Mention for Excellence by a GTA. While I did not get selected as the schools’ winner it was nevertheless a wonderful recognition of my work as GTA. Especially since the recognitions we PhD students receive mostly focus on our research achievements.
I will certainly carry the values and standards I have established for myself as a GTA into this semester’s independent teaching and look forward to receive feedback from my students later in the semester.
