We are very excited to teach you this spring! Please contact course staff if you have any logistical questions or concerns. Otherwise feel free to email any of the staff members below.
Teaching Assistants (TAs), also known as Graduate/Undergraduate Student Instructors (GSIs), focus their teaching efforts on a particular component of the course, such as sections, exam prep, or walkthrough videos. Head TAs additionally manage a broader component of the course, such as logistics, content, software, office hours, etc.
Some Head TAs have access to sensitive information, and so are listed first. A TA with the "cs61a@" tag has access to the firstname.lastname@example.org inbox, and so will see (and likely respond to) anything that goes through that email. A TA with the "DSP" tag has access to DSP information, and so will see anything related to accommodations. TAs with access to both are the people you are most likely to be in contact with if you have a logistical need.
