One thing I am feeling very happy about is that some of my students are becoming very active about asking me questions and they don’t hesitate to speak to me and each other about broad topics. If I am successful at establishing a degree of trust with them, my past studies will help build relationship with the students. Luca said that I always look happy after finishing teaching on Monday and Wednesday, no matter how good or bad the classes were.
I told my supervisors for the first time that I teach four hours per week and it takes about one or two days to prepare for it. The first year PhD students normally do not teach at the first stage until they put their plans on track. We concluded that I need to quit if it becomes too much pressure and I get behind with my work schedule.
