Teach as a GTA

Working as a graduate teaching assistant (GTA) at the University of Maryland can be a rewarding experience for both you and your students.  As a GTA, you are often the first or primary personal contact students will have with an instructor during their first year.  Your interactions with those students will significantly impact the type of experience they have as undergraduate learners.  With preparation, planning, and effective time management, a teaching assistantship can prepare you to be an effective future faculty member and to improve your scholarship.
