Congrats to @JohnATL ๐Ÿ†

Looks like @JohnAtl was named โ€œGraduate Teaching Assistant of the Yearโ€ for the School of Biological Sciences at Georgia Tech. I know there are several teachers on MPU and so Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™m not alone in knowing how hard it is to teach, how rare validation like this is our line of work, and how good you have to be to actually achieve such distinction.

Way to go, John!

Wow, really? I challenge you to try teaching for a full academic year, then reassess your statement.

Who on earth flagged the OP from @beck in this thread, and for what possible reason?

I may have tagged it by mistake, in trying to tag the aggressive post above yours; apologies.

Thank you, Amy โ€“ whatever success Iโ€™ve had in life is due in large part to the mentors / teachers / instructors Iโ€™ve encountered along the way โ€“ and continue to encounter here and elsewhere. Kudos to you all.

Ah. Well, that can happen. Perhaps especially at this time of year, for academics. I hope your semester is ending well.
