2011: Taylor Barton

Electrical engineering and computer science

This year’s recipient is Taylor Barton, a graduate student in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science who has served four times as a Teaching Assistant and four times as a recitation instructor. Most impressively, this past semester, she independently developed and taught a new H-level class with a lab component. One student writes that she provides the class with “exactly the right mix of help, insight, and encouragement, all in a quietly confident style.” Another says that she has “incredible talent…she’s worth her weight in gold.” MIT thanks Taylor Barton for her exemplary performance and commitment in the classroom.”
