Re-enrollment Part 2

September 09, 2015
So a lot has happened since my last update! I'm not only re-enrolled, but I have a TA position (terrifying!).

I have an adviser and a new project, although I get the impression that won't really get off the ground for a couple of weeks. Which is probably just as well, as it will give me a chance to make a dent in the project I'm finishing for my last employer.

For the TA position I'll lead three labs a week. I'm pretty nervous about it, but I think it's going to be more of the "take attendance, introduce the lab, answer questions and keep people on task" kind of deal, rather than "design a complimentary curriculum and lecture" type of TA-ing. I attended the first two classes, and it seems pretty introductory and non-math oriented.

So it really is back to school time for me, probably for the last time! I'm actually pretty excited about it, I like having structure and a schedule to follow, and although I'm very nervous about TA-ing, I think it will be a really good experience for me and being able to teach is such a useful skill that this is a great opportunity for me, even if I find it kind of scary.
