Recent graduate Rebecca Mandich was selected to receive a 2018 Teaching Assistant Award. During the fall 2018 semester, she served as instructor for African 331: First Semester Swahili.
To recognize the excellence of TAs across campus, the Graduate School supports the College of Letters & Science to administer awards each year for exceptional teaching by graduate students. UW–Madison employs more than 2,000 TAs across a wide range of disciplines. Their contributions to the classroom, lab, and field are essential to the university’s educational mission.
A reception and award ceremony is held in February and Rebecca will receive $500 in recognition of the high quality of her performance.
Rebecca earned her MA with a focus in pedagogy in December 2018.
