I started to write down all of the “secrets” to being a teacher and found that there were just too many to put in one post, so this will become a series. I am spilling the academic tea here.
Throughout your college career, you’re going to (if you haven’t already) run into teachers who are difficult.

These instructors are often unfair, unprofessional, and disrespectful. Here’s the Obi-Wan Kenobi list of how to use the Force to your advantage and save your GPA from the Dark Side’s grasp.
Sometimes, it can feel intimidating to sign up for a class with over 100 seats available on the roster when you’re used to classes that have no more than 30-something students in them. I’ve compiled a list of how to deal with big college lectures and why you shouldn’t be intimidated to sign up for these massive classes.
