• Astro 155 - Yale University - Professor Michael Faison - Observational Astronomy Lab - I assisted undergraduates with data collection using the Leitner telescope facilities.
  • Astro 160 - Yale University - Professor Louise Edwards - Frontiers and Controversies in Astrophysics - we used an innovative flipped classroom approach for our 152 person lectures, interacting with the students via novel demonstrations and in-class activities. 
  • Astro 105 - Yale University - Professor Gregory Laughlin Earth in its Cosmic Context -I had the pleasure to teach this course with my advisor Greg Laughlin. We aimed to teach our students how to do order of magnitude estimates in the context of astronomy. I designed original material for my section; for example, I designed an in classroom activity in which we estimated how many gallons of air we breath out in a day, by estimating how many breaths it takes to fill a balloon and then estimating the volume of a balloon.

Some of my teaching evaluations may be found below:

"Darryl was a great TA and very supportive on particularly difficult pset questions. In addition he was able to teach us new information not necessarily covered in class in interesting ways. He was very understanding when people struggled with the homework and did his best to be an available resource whenever we needed help."  "Darryl was a fantastic TA - he was a fair grader, gave appropriate and helpful feedback, and scheduled and conducted very helpful sections."  "Darryl is terrific, truly a wonderful Teaching Fellow. I enjoyed getting to know him and wish him the best. He's bright, kind, genuinely interested in having his students understand the material, and delightful to listen to."  "He was very attentive and encouraged everyone to participate in section. In teaching, he was able to find a balance between making things too hard and too easy, such that he helped us with the material while still making sure we were challenged. He could improve by organizing and assigning material to particular sections, and ensuring that we stick to each topic in a given time period so that we can cover all the material."
