In addition, as of Fall 2017, I am working on completing my Certificate for Teaching Excellence through the Center for Teaching and Learning (CETL) at Georgia State University.  The Certificate of Teaching Excellence as described by CETL, “provides a professional academic standard by recognizing the discipline-specific pedagogy programs, and related mentoring and supervision achieved by Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs). GTAs who can demonstrate that they have met and exceeded these standards are eligible for the Certificate of Teaching Excellence and will have the certificate noted on their official University transcript.”
