Tough teaching day. Sometimes no matter how much you believe in a student, they have a hard time believing in themselves.

TM: so true Debby; goes for alot of different situations doesn’t it!

BL: I sometimes think that is the biggest obstacle most students face…

DK: most definitely. i just wish i could give this one the confidence they need. as it was, all i could do was hold her hand and hug her as she cried. they don’t put “counselor” in the job description… but they should.

BL: You know, they forgot to tell me that tutoring is 40% teaching, 60% counseling. That really needs to be in the job description!

JH: And there lies the rub…. I tell students if they try I won’t let them fail. Because they try, its easy to keep my promise.

BC: been there done that…keep believing in them

KB: There are definitely three types of students – those that have too much confidence in their abilities, not enough, and just the right amount. They all need support from instructors and counseling. Good on you for being an instructor that cares enough to notice somebody struggling and in need of some help.

WA: I had one like that last semester and it just breaks your heart!! The lucky thing for your student Deb is that you are their teacher and you really truly care — that is where the true difference is!!

KB: *hugs* (and chocolate) to the people that care out there…

GMC: Education is a personal experience. We are our biggest obstacle. However, we conscientiously put the obstacles others give us in our own way.

February 22 at 9:35pm

KB: That is completely true!

SB: Keep being an unfounded optimist it gets you through the tough days;)

SB: just kidding, if my students would just realize they are as smart as I think they are they would be unstoppable.
