Productive Learning Experience
Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – College Park, MD – January 4, 2018
My job as a teaching assistant for the University of Maryland's school of Information Science was an exciting experience that taught me about what it means to be an educator. A typical day at work consisted of attending lectures, teaching lectures, hosting office hours, answering student emails and questions on Piazza, grading, and proctoring tests and quizzes. I learned how to bounce back from failures and mistakes as an educator. And I learned how to address these mistakes and maintain credibility with the staff and students. Management was fantastic under the course instructor. The culture of the workplace was laid back and instructional. The hardest part of the job was the process of learning how to be a proper educator The most enjoyable part of the job was learning from feedback and constructive criticism. This job required that I took a one credit course, TLTC333.
