Meet Our Team: Teaching Assistant
“Hello! My name is Amanda Meadows and I am from Bristol, Tennessee! I am a sophomore at King and I am working towards a major in Biology with a minor in Mathematics. This is my first semester as a Religion TA, but I am absolutely loving the opportunity to help guide my fellow peers through this class and to teach them to think critically! I am also a Chemistry Lab TA, Biology Administrative Assistant, and I hold a management position at my job outside of school. I have always loved the academic aspect of school, so I have been on the President’s List for the past two semesters. In what little free time I have, I enjoy going to church, listening to music, hanging out with my family and friends, and working retail! One of my passions in life is helping those around me, so I hope to one day obtain my doctorate degree and become a Geneticist or an Anesthesiologist. I am very thankful for the role professors and student at King have played so far in my life, and I am excited to see what these next 2 years hold!!”
We are so grateful for Amanda’s work with her students this year in Foundations. And I love it when our future scientists are teaching in a religion class like this. She is smart, rigorous, and caring. Thank you, Amanda, for all you do in spite of being busy and competent with many other things.
Students leading and teaching other students and helping them become critical thinkers and good writers.
“Why do we think about the way we think?” “Where did you get that idea?” “Can you source what you wrote?” “What is your worldview and where did you get it?”
These are some of the reasons to attend King University.
Community. Service. Leadership. Critical Thinking. Success. Connection.
Another successful Foundations group discussion class in spite of the rainy Thursday. Led by Sydney Bailey and our excellent peer mentors.
