Ever had a bad day in the classroom? Ever made a mistake with your students you wish you could take back? I certainly have, and in this installment of my "What I've Learned" video series, I share the story of my biggest regret in the classroom, a time when I completely blew it.
This was a difficult story to tell. I'm certainly not proud of this one, but I wanted to share the story in hopes of encouraging those like me who may have said or done something they wish they could take back. Educators aren't perfect. Like everyone else, we're going to blow it, and we can't always take back our words or actions. It's the choice we make after our mistakes that can help make the difference.
