The "Name Your Fav Professor/TA" Thread

I was in a meeting with my TA earlier to discuss my paper (the one I was ranting about here), and I realized that she's one of the bestest TAs ever. Here's why:

1) She makes a LOT of comments on our papers, which means that revisions will be less stressful because we know *exactly* what she wants for our final papers.

2) She bakes for us almost every class, and on the days that she doesn't bake, she brings us chocolate! I think this is her way of manipulating us by keeping us fat and happy, but hey, it works pretty damn well. Mmmm, cookies--nature's stress-reliever.

3) Related to #2, she's keeps us laughing in lab, which keeps us interested in the material and happy, yes, very happy.

4) She's pretty. Looking at a cute TA relieves stress.

My favorite professor was my former research professor--the one who pulled me away from a lifetime of rolling my eyes at patients as a nurse and steered me firmly into the vast waters of psychological research. She's a lot like my fav TA minus the manipulation through sweets.

Who are/were your favorite professors and/or TAs, and what are/were they like?

My favorite TA is my Organic Chem lab TA. He's awesome, because if you ask him a question, he'll pretty much do your whole experiment for you.

My Genetics lab TA is just a really weird, funny guy. Makes counting flies and yeast colonies a bit more interesting.

My Botany lab TA is awesome because she's so dang cute and full of energy.

My Botany professor is a little old lady. She's one of the nicest professors I've ever had, and one of the most enthusiastic about teaching the subject. This is her last semester teaching, though.

My favorite TA is from Intro Kinesiology. He is very intelligent and has a 'go get 'em' mentality when it comes to getting the most out of education.

Last semester he started a strength and conditioning club which I've gone to quite often and have learned significantly more about the subject of kinesiology than I have in the courses in which I've paid way too much money. Actually, not really as I'm on scholarship

He gave me a lot of useful input on graded assignments and keeps referring to me as brilliant. That's bonus points right there!

My TA's this semester are alright. In one of my kinesiology courses there is a TA who I know from the strength and conditioning club and he's a cool guy.

TA in one of my labs is terrible. Does not explain things very well, especially assignments. That is so frustrating.
