It was for the first time I was a TA in any course and it was my first year at ISU. Xiaoke was my mentor in my TA team in 2019 and 2020. She always managed to work through her tight research schedule and still managed to take out time to help me practice the labs before I taught it to other students. In this pandemic, she is working extra hard with online lab simulations so that students can learn remotely. She is a hard-working person and an inspiration. She also gives great advice and is very approachable. Thank you so much for everything Xiaoke!
