This was my first district wide event in my new position as a tech coach. Failure is not feeling like a gift. Kids are forgiving, adults - not so much. You get one chance to make an impression, and I am worried, that I lost some people. I'm hoping the gift from today will make itself clear over the next 24 hours because I'm bummed out.
I know we are all our own toughest critics, and it probably wasn't nearly as bad as I perceived it to be, but I can't help but be disappointed. I was such a confident teacher, and failure of this magnitude was a rarity. I have to move on because that's all I can do. I will continue to look for the gift in today. I'll let you know if I find it.
