Right folks? Right?

I’m developing a verbal tic, I think? I keep catching myself ending my sentences with “…right?” as I’m speaking to my students. I’ve never done this before, you guys. It’s weird. I’m trying to consciously replace it with something assertive, like “understand?”, because that’s what I’m really asking – I want to check in with my students. But “…right?” sounds like I’m unsure, or something, and it keeps slipping out anyway and it is FREAKING ME OUT.

My AT hasn’t mentioned it, so maybe it isn’t as noticeable and weird as I feel it is. Or maybe he’s just being nice. I aim to ask.

Anyone else find this happening to them? Any success knocking it off? Because even if my students aren’t noticing, it is totally distracting for me when a catch myself doing it.

Weird.
