TA Adventures

Stacks of paper, just waiting to become books

On Tuesday I had the honor of being the teaching assistant for a new SFCB instructor, Jaye Lee Fishel. Jaye was teaching the same workshop I have been teaching, Introduction to Bookbinding, but, it was nice to take a break and be a helper this time around. Plus, Jaye had a ton of little tips and tricks up her sleeve, things I had never thought of (like having students bind the handouts, instead of stapling them). Plus, being the TA gave me the chance to do something I can't do while teaching--take photos of what we were making.
