I found out this week that I was one of two winners for our department's TA award. I was nominated for my term in the fall when I TA'ed the third year graphics course for our game dev students.
It's really nice to be recognized for the effort I put into the term, from running a course blog to offering informal tutorials before midterms. It's also kind of cool to win because I helped set up the award in the first place while I was the TA Mentor.
As an added bonus, the undergraduate TA who won actually TA'ed for me the first time I taught as a contract instructor. How cool is that?
I'm heading to campus today for our end of year reception, where we'll both be recognized as winners.
