Inspirational Friday

What’s a time you’ve had to stop and tell yourself it’s okay not to be perfect?  One of the biggest times I come across me wanting to be perfect is when I teach.  I “am” the teacher.  I should “know” everything. I know I can’t know everything, but I usually feel like I should. I’m sharing my knowledge. I should be able to answer my students questions.

I’ve learned though, that I don’t know everything and it’s okay.  I’ve also learned to turn those moments into a “learning” moment.  I’m a teaching. I’m not perfect. I don’t know everything.  But my students and I can stop and look up an answer to a question we don’t know.  Or experiment. Or do some research.  And in the end I’ve gained yet more knowledge (that usually I’m no likely to forget either!)
