“I must be doing something wrong.” That’s what I tell myself every time things run more smoothly than expected. I must be forgetting something. Comparing notes with the other TAs, I’m the only one who has not been getting questions by e-mail from students. Yes, that may mean less work, but it definitely sets me wondering. Do they think that I won’t know the answer? Am I an off-putting person; are they too scared to ask me? Do they think I’ll be too critical or too mean when I’m answering a question? Or is it another reason altogether?
