Newhouse doctoral candidate wins Outstanding TA Award

Jeongwon Yang

Doctoral candidate Jeongwon Yang received the Outstanding TA award from Syracuse University’s Graduate School, recognizing teaching assistants who have made distinguished contributions to Syracuse university through excellency in teaching or assisting senior faculty members in high-enrollment courses.

“I would definitely like to teach in the future. I learned so much from being a TA as I learned what I am good at and what I can improve in the future. Teaching the course myself and receiving students’ feedback, I had a chance to try different teaching methods to create an engaging and inclusive learning environment,” says Yang.

Winners will receive a personalized gift from the Graduate School. Congratulations, Jeongwon!
