Physics Teaching Assistant Awards

The work of the teaching assistants is one of the most vital roles in the success of our undergraduate teaching laboratories. Thus, it is our great honor to acknowledge our awardees for the 2021 Best Physics Teaching Assistants:

James Paltani, Best Graduate Teaching Assistant

Andrew Scherer, Best Undergraduate Teaching Assistant

Congratulations to Andrew and James! This is an award that is provided by the department to the teaching assistants who positively contributed to the overall success of the undergraduate teaching laboratories throughout the year. Despite the challenges of a hybrid lab and tutoring environment, James and Andrew provided a welcoming and supportive atmosphere.  There was an enormous amount of positive feedback from the students regarding their efforts.  They went above and beyond in their duties, and we are grateful to them
