Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Myself:

    I have doubts that you should be a special education teacher. It takes a special kind of person to teach those kids and you may not have what it takes.

  • How I responded:

    Take it one day at a time. Confidence will come with experience. Talk to people, don't be scared to ask questions, and find a mentor you trust. Expect to make mistakes.
