    The way the university hires, they hire based on research. But, a proff could be completely brilliant, yet suck as a teacher.

    True.

    I hadn't thought of that.

    But having the opportunity to do research would have been nice.

    Maybe undergrad at a liberal arts and doing graduate and doctorate work at a research based school is the way to go if I go for any more advanced degrees.

      Yeah, teaching isn't just dependent on knowing the material. In fact, a lot of the more intelligent professors have trouble relating to people who don't pick it up naturally and have a hard time deciding where to go into greater depth and where to offer further explanation. In short, they just have no idea what will hang a student up.

      And yeah, even in a lot of smaller colleges, research is a big deal.

      I hope that you enjoy being a TA. The TAs at my university always were also the graders, but ran things like labs and tutoring sessions and the like.
