Re: First class as a teacher

Another interesting couplle of things I found. First was the shock on some faces when they ask a question and the the answer I give is a straight 'I don't know.' Usually followed by 'Let's see.'

Whenever someone asks 'what would you do if ?' I always answer 'I don't know'

On the other side of the coin so to speak how many times have you been put in a situation as a teacher and automatically come up with the solution. Only to look back later and wonder how comes you knew that.

It's as if we don't validate sometimes how much we do know. Maybe it's because we're too focused on what else we want to learn.
