Congratulations to Our 2012 Teaching Assistant Award Winners!

On Thursday, May 10th, the School of Biological Sciences held its annual Teaching Assistant (TA) Award ceremony. Out of over 300 TAs that were appointed over the past year, we had 25 TAs nominated for this honor, but could choose only 10 to win the award. The list below includes all of the TAs who were nominated, the names of those faculty members who wrote letters of nomination, and the courses the TAs helped teach. The TAs who were chosen by the selection committee to receive a TA Award are in bolded green text and can be seen in the photo below. Every one of these students has demonstrated exceptional qualities in the classroom.

We would like to thank these TAs, both the award winners and those nominated, for being outstanding teaching assistants. TAs are an integral part of the teaching experience and you have gone above and beyond what has been asked of you. Thank you!
