“My unofficial TA”: senior gets a chance to teach

Nataly Maloney ‘13 sees an opportunity not available to “most prospective architecture students"
“Nataly Maloney ’13 has one free block that happens to fall during my Residential Architecture class,” says Chris Atwood, chairman of the Digital Arts department. “She faithfully attends this class every day.” What makes this remarkable is the fact that Nataly, who has applied to colleges offering architectural programs, has already taken the course—last fall. According to Chris her level of engagement is impressive. “She is my unofficial TA,” he reports, readily stepping in to instruct her fellow students about a tool or technique. “She moves about the room to help her peers,” he adds, “who have been very appreciative of her time, knowledge, and skills.”

Nataly is relishing her out-of-Pomfret experience. “Having been given the opportunity to be a Teaching Assistant in the Residential Architecture class has been a real honor for me,” she says. “I feel incredibly lucky to be able to further my knowledge on Autodesk Revit, the program I will be using in college. Not only that, but to help teach a class of my peers about different components in the program is an opportunity that many prospective architecture students don’t find available until they are in their graduate years of college.”
