Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Peers:

    "You didn't even student teach." "You're just a brand new teacher." "You're not ready. "

  • How I responded:

    We all have our own path, our own way of getting there. I just try to make sure to work harder than people expect, ask questions and find answers for what I don't know and be humble about what you do know.
