Second Chances.

I yelled at a student yesterday.

I didn't know I could yell.

I didn't know I could be "mean".

Now I have anxiety.

The student didn't come today.

I wrote this a week or so ago. Looking back I can now say that it is not my fault. But do you ever feel like things are your fault because you're the teacher and you're new and you should've tried harder? It's a good thing there are second chances.


  1. I strongly believe in second chances! I'd be hiding under a rock...

  2. Oh, I feel that way every day. And I've been doing this for a long time. Thank you for sharing!

  3. We've all been where you are. When I make a mistake with a student, and you will, I apologize the very next day. Sometimes I do it in front of the class and sometimes in private. Kids need to see us doing what we want them to do.
