For Graduate Instructors & Teaching Assistants

This page is intended to help teaching assistants, graduate students and academic instructors of all varieties. Teaching tools are developed from various places, but I do my best to credit their sources if they do not belong to only me. There are links here that send you to other teaching sites as well. Happy Teaching!
