Over the years, the comments in his TA evaluations are always positive and remarks on his valuable contribution to our student’s education. Congratulations Leo!

This award is by nomination across UBC campus. In recognition of the valuable role that teaching assistants play in our undergraduate programs, UBC annually awards teaching prizes to sixteen UBC Teaching Assistants. The prize includes a certificate and $1,000. Successful candidates will have met criteria that result in a high level of respect from undergraduate students and academic or course supervisors.

The awards, given annually since 1996/1997, send the important message to students (both undergraduate and graduate) that UBC values teaching and seeks to recognize teaching excellence at our university.
