What is your advice about? Surviving your first term
- Smile not in a manic way but in an approachable way.
- Fake it till you make it, be confident with your classes. Act like you expect them to follow your requests don’t appear surprised when they do.
- Observe as much as you can. It is the best way to see policies in practice.
- Find an ally preferably two, one in your department and another outside it.
- Don’t be scared of asking questions if you aren’t sure of what is expected. Everyone was in your position once.
