Experience Is Good In The TA Biz

I met with my advisor today, partly to talk about my dissertation proposal (he was very happy to see the draft already, and thinks I could be ready to do Special Fields and defend the proposal as early as the beginning of October) and partially to talk about my TAing for him for Music 102 again. It was good that I brought this up, because no one had told him that I'd be his TA, and he was pleased to hear it.

I'm pleased that I've already had the experience of working with him for a quarter, because it looks very much like I might have to take the class solo on the first day.

Scheduling, dontcha know.

Well, it's not as bad as it sounds. School doesn't start for another month and a bit, so we've got time. And he likes having me as TA, so this was pleasant news to break.

Yup, I'll be TAing for my advisor. It's a nice, cozy little situation, especially since we get along well.

You gotta love this sort of stuff. This week I was asked to teach a course I've never taught and classes start next week and I have to do Angel training (Angel is like Blackboard or WebCT, for Distance Learning classes) in order to teach the class. All this for the stunning salary of $2000 for 16 weeks of work. *Sigh* I feel for you.

At least I have some experience with the class and the professor, so I'm not jumping into this cold!
