“Parham came into the Master’s program knowing exactly how he wanted it to go, which included being the best TA ever. He engages with his students on a level that they can relate to, allowing them to communicate with, and ultimately rely on him as a partner in learning. The appreciation is mutual. Outside the classroom Parham always speaks highly of his students and how they all work together as a team, not just TA and student. His enthusiasm and ability to intellectually engage students is what has made him not only a two-time TA award winner, but an MA graduate who never strayed from his original ambition.”
