    I have been working at Syracuse University part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I have enjoyed teaching undergraduates at Syracuse University. Being a Teaching Assistant provides a lot of personal growth experience and is easily balanced between other school work and my research.

    Cons

    The undergraduates at Syracuse University do not care very much about their grades or academics. The department I was a teaching assistant for seemed to be divided among faculty between the priorities of research/publication and effective education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide the tools needed for teaching assistants to effectively do their jobs while giving us flexibility to teach lesson plans as we see effective. There needs to be more innovation in teaching than there currently is.
