Anyone who is a teacher knows just how much really goes into teaching. On a good day, it can be a hard and rewarding job. When you are the one responsible for molding the up-and-coming teachers, however, there is an added pressure. Whether you are a veteran teacher or a newbie, it never hurts to go over some basic, solid teaching advice.
Writers are definitely good at creating new words. It is one thing to just invent a word, but it is a whole other thing to create a great word that will be widely used by future generations.
You’ve already finished high school. You’ve left home and become a college or university student. The world seems to be yours and you are the best person to shape your destiny. Whoa. Not that fast.

It’s a question each student cares about.

While I was working on my MFA, I taught English 101 and 102 to college students (plus a few upper-level creative writing courses and senior capstone projects).

I had only just graduated from college myself and was sometimes younger than some of my students, and it didn’t help that I wasn’t really “over” being an undergraduate student yet.
As a student, you might wonder why use libraries, if so much information you can access on the web for free. Here’s an answer: To find quality facts online is quite often too time-consuming.

How often do you notice that students are dissatisfied or annoyed because of their educators? Was it because they were too strict or unfair?

At the same time, there are many who would like to take advantage of someone else’s achievements.
