Every teacher, no matter how amazing they may be have had complete disasters in the classroom. New and Veteran alike will have struggles in the classroom and will have days they walk out frustrated. Sometimes we can pinpoint the issue, sometimes we can't. The video below is an honest and open look at a highly accomplished teacher struggling. I hope you find the video to be useful and an area to learn from.
