Oopsie Daisy! Lessons Learned from Many Mistakes
Mistakes are Normal
Everyone makes mistakes. However, the true character of an individual, especially a teacher, is whether they admit their mistakes and how they carry themselves after admitting their goof. I like to think that making mistakes makes us stronger educators. How many times has a lesson failed, you've made some tweaks, and the next time it was taught it went off without a hitch? It's common. There's one phrase that sticks with me any time I make a mistake, which tends to be more frequent than I'd like, that I heard at a conference. I'm sure you've heard it, but F.A.I.L = First Attempt In Learning. This is a great motivator for picking up the pieces and correcting your mistake to make yourself better in the future.
