All of my female classmates have complained about not being taken seriously by their students. I think I'll have an easier time of it than they did in some respects - just by virtue of not being so young I'll be mistaken for an undergrad student! - but it is definitely a thing.

All of my female classmates have also complained about having student evaluations comment on their physical appearance.

So, right at the rice-and-beans stage of my summer vacation, I am fretting about whether I need skin care products and makeup and new shampoo and new clothes (fortunately I remembered I had some ModCloth credit from some clothes I returned last year!) which is more - I think - about my own confidence level than about whether I can actually get students to like me more.

All of my classmates did fine as teachers. I find it likely that I'm going to be more nervous or awkward than most of them but I will not be the most awkward. No, I probably won't be able to get most people to care about ENGL 150 through the sheer force of my personal presence, but... it'll be fine. Fine-ish.

I could still buy a new lipstick or something. Because CONFIDENCE.
