Last week I was watching a rerun of The Office, one of my favorite shows, and Dwight Schrute made a statement (to Jim) that epitomizes the approach that some faculty seem to take with their students, so, I think that I will adopt it as my teaching philosophy.
"Fact, I am older, I am wiser. Do not mess with me."
What do you think? Maybe I should put it on the syllabus?
