    Conrado's Bio:
    Born and raised in urban Madrid, lived in rural northern California and ended up in snowy suburban Minnesota. During the school year you'll find me firmly entrenched in a routine designed to develop my Psychology research skills, and during the summer you will probably not find me at all; in my free time, I enjoy going on trekking trips in the backcountry, adventuring through recondite countries and most importantly spending time with my family.

What is it like to be a Psychology TA?

As a Psychology Teacher’s Assistant, I get to do many of the menial tasks professors don’t have time to do. Usually this involves grading homework assignments, quizzes and exams. Usually we only grade multiple choice type questions, but as we build rapport with the professors, they also have us grade short answers and do other miscellaneous tasks. The tasks you get depend primarily on the professor you work for, and so does the schedule: some prefer that you meet with them weekly to work through the assignments they’ve been compiling, while others will call on you as they need it. Overall, though, it is a pleasant, flexible job I’d recommend to anyone who is interested in building their resume for a psych-related grad school, or any teaching positions!
