I can't find my home directory on OS X

In OS X Finder, I don't see my home directory on the left. Any idea how to find this? Thanks!

Cmd-shift-h in Finder should take you there.

Then, once you're in your home directory, File -> Add to Sidebar will add it to your Favorites list.

Thanks Christopher! :)

This question appears fairly often on the forums, it might be a good idea to add this info to Teacher's Notes. It seems the default setting in OS X Mavericks is to hide it from the sidebar. Jason Seifer, think you could make that happen?

Hey Dino Paškvan great idea! I'm going to be updating those installation videos very soon but I've updated the teacher notes in the mean time. Thanks!
