A day of apologies.

January 30, 2019

Today was a day of apologies.

First, I was impatient with students in the library because they weren't reading. I quickly learned that someone was overly concerned about a classmate and needed to talk to someone about it.

I apologized for not being patient.

Then, students weren't supposed to use a certain staircase and told them to turn around. I quickly learned that they had permission and I was wrong.

I apologized to the students that I confused because I assumed some things (and you know what happens when you assume). Lastly, I spoke with a parent about an interaction with a student last week and realized I could have communicated better about the situation.

I apologized for not contacting them to share the concern.

It hasn't always been easy to apologize for the things I've messed up but I do know that I feel much better about myself when I do.

Teachers are human and humans make mistakes.

You're human. Be one.
