Graduate teaching assistant was a fun experience
Graduate Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Wichita Falls, TX – February 6, 2017
A typical day consisted of preparing for lab, which included things like preparing solutions, making a quiz, finishing grading, meeting students for tutoring hours, and ordering supplies. This position really solidified knowledge because you go from learning ideas to teaching ideas, some of which are complex at the college level. Workplace culture was fun because we were all poor graduate students that liked to learn, so we would spend our free time together. Management was helpful when it came to ordering supplies or with questions on teaching or making quizzes or tests. The hardest part of the job was all the grading, especially if the lab you're teaching requires lab reports; they stack up quickly. The most enjoyable part of the job was teaching students.
