Protecting Students from Frustration

The more I teach and the more I read the more flexible I become as a mentor of students...the more I prioritize their learning over everything else--including judgment-based assessment. If a student fails or struggles, they get to keep trying even as others may move forward or in a different direction for now. I can't misread their failure, confusion, or frustration with laziness or not wanting to succeed.

When I struggle, it is often a colleague or a mentor who protects me, supports me, and encourages me.

All of our students should see and experience learning in their school in the same way.
