Virginia Tech (2010-present)

As a Dean's Teaching Fellow, I have had increasing teaching responsibilities during my tenure at Virginia Tech.  My fellowship has allowed me the opportunity to teach large lectures (100-seat & 300-seat enrollment) and coordinate the  10 laboratory sections taught by four graduate students and one faculty member teaching.  It is not everyday that a graduate student is responsible for ensuring a faculty member is returning assignments in a timely manner - but that was my reality in Spring 2012!
