Never piss off the secretary December 23, 2012Posted by mareserinitatis in teaching.

After re-reading what I wrote in my last post, I realize that I sounded rather smug. That really wasn’t what I was going for, so I’m going to elaborate.
I try to work well with the staff and faculty when I’m teaching, and I try to make sure that I’m available to my students if I need help. I had a lot of profs like that when I was in undergrad, and I try to emulate them. I also had other profs who weren’t so conscientious (and a few who obviously didn’t care at all), and I really don’t want to be like that. I am hoping, given the comment by the secretary, I’m doing a decent job of working with people, students included.
Also, that secretary keeps a bat behind her desk. I really don’t want her to use it on me…even if it is inflatable.
