Have I mentioned that I have a student teacher working in my room at the moment?
It's interesting - watching her practice and hone her craft.
And it is odd - watching her do things: which sometimes is like watching a train wreck in slow motion! But we all do this. Try. Learn. Change. Try again.
So next time I look at the 'room' full of stuff that I have collected, the wrinkles around the eyes, the grey hairs which are beginning to appear... I will know that THIS is how we learn.
Each, and every day.
