Q: I'm entering a doctoral program this fall, and praying that after I do a TAship (start in 2nd year) that I may enjoy teaching (even with all the misery). But, as of now, I know nothing about how to teach because I haven't taught jack squat. How can you like something you've never done?!
When did you realize you wanted to teach for a career? Before you entered grad school or after your first TAship? Or, at another time?
