Looking for Fall 14 Teaching Assistant

Hey all,

I am looking for a teaching assistant (like what Patrick was for the summer class) for my Fall 14 semester.

Duties of the teaching assistant would be to assist students during lab time with questions. Although the position is UNPAID, there are very good reasons to take the positition.

1) You get to retake the class again for FREE. According to CCSF rules you can not repeat classes as a student, but as my TA, you circumvent that rule.

2) At the end of the semester I will write you a nice letter of recommendation that you can use to help you get a internship or job.

3) The most important reason is that teaching will help you LEARN the material. Studies have shown that when students teach others they themselves learn the material more deeply. Thus, by being my TA you'll help yourself become stronger at these core graphic design skills.

If you are interested please write me an email at davidhurwich@gmail.com and we will discuss it.
