Never Too Late To Learn!
Thursday, April 13, 2017
Life and school are a lot alike. We have so much to learn, and so much to teach others. I have found that when I am willing to learn what others have to teach, they are much more open to learn from me. Learning can be a lot of fun when you're willing to humble yourself and try something new!
Yesterday on the playground, Teela ran over and said, "Mrs. Stetser, you can hula hoop. I know you can!" I gave it a shot. Never in my life have I been able to do it. The hoop would just drop after 15 seconds. I was a failure at the hula hoop! Teela instructed me to make smaller movements with my hips. Guess what? It worked!
I am now a successful hula hooper, thanks to a fourth grade student who believed in my ability! I learn from my students, and my students think that's GREAT!
