Eyerusalem Alemu

Eyerusalem Alemu, Frosh/Transfer 101 TA

Hi everyone! I’m super excited to be TAing Frosh101 this quarter. I took Frosh101 winter quarter my frosh year and have been involved with the program since. I had a great learning experience in both UAR194A and UAR194B and gained so much from my TAs, which I hope to bring to you all. I know leading a class can seem scary at first but, together, we’ll make sure you’re ready as can be! I hope we’ll also get the chance to develop friendships through this experience and get to know each other better :)

Kamau MuseMorris

Kamau MuseMorris, Frosh/Transfer 101 TA

Hi! My name is Kamau MuseMorris, and my hometown is St. Louis, Missouri. I’m a sophomore currently majoring in Economics with interest in International Relations. Like many students in the class of 2024, my Frosh year was filled with all online courses and very little peer-to-peer interaction. Frosh 101 served as an escape from the social isolation of online learning, and many of my section peers have become some of my best friends to this day. As a TA, I am ecstatic to pass along the positive experiences and lessons that I have gained from this program onto the next generation of Frosh 101 co-leads.

Storytelling in all its forms is one of my biggest passions because I think it has an incredible power to bring people together and I can’t wait to get to know all your stories. Frosh 101 was an incredible experience for me, and I am thrilled to be one of your TAs so please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions or even just to chat :)

Zach Teplin

Zach Teplin, Frosh/Transfer 101 Head TA

Hi all! My name is Zach Teplin, and I am a current junior majoring in Biomechanical Engineering and minoring in Chemistry. Outside of classes, I have found my home at Stanford in communities such as the Club Swim Team, 6th Man Club, Stanford Undergrads in Mechanical Engineering, and more, truly enjoying the wide array of opportunities and people at this school. Over my past two years, one of the highlights of every week has been the opportunity to work with Frosh and help guide them in their transition to college as I found that I learned just as much from Frosh as I hope they did in sections with me. Looking forward to working with everyone!
