Comment on: Common Instructor Mistakes | Origin: ED104 | originally posted by ED Chair

As a new instructor I need to remember that I have the education and expertise in my field to teach the class.  Sharing that I am new and that this is the first time I am teaching really will not benefit me.  Being organized and focusing on class management should help with any anxiety that I may encounter during those first few classes.  Devloping a rapport is essential during the first few classes.  I believe that this will put me more at ease.
