Put the female headers in place. When you solder them, first solder just the 2 extremities.

After soldering the 2 outer pins of the 4 headers, check that the headers are perfectly perpendicular to the PCB. If not, simply heat one of the soldered pads and push the header flat to the PCB.

Having the header perfectly perpendicular will make it easy to add "Shields" to your board, otherwise adding a shield will require you to bend the leads
