This semester I’m TAing for CS162: Operating Systems and Systems Programming taught by Anthony Joseph and Ion Stoica. Here in Berkeley, we call a TA a GSI (Graduate Student Instructor). This is my first time GSI appointment in Berkeley, and it comes after more than 2 years of break. The last time I TAed, I was in UWaterloo and received the best TA award. It’ll be very hard to match that, but I am hoping not to disappoint my students. We’ll see how it goes.
PS: What is the proper verb form of “TA”? TAing, TA-ing, TA’ing or what? Someone must’ve had solved this problem already :(
