The best lessons
The best lessons are the ones where I come out and feel like I have a lot to work on, but I'm excited to start. I had one of those this week. I came to my lesson, expecting Dr. Anderson to be so impressed with what I had done this week. He was, but then we went through the pieces that I had thought were "perfected" and found many MORE things for me to work on. It's frustrating during the lesson when I am not grasping new concepts right away, but it's exactly what I want. Think about it. I'm getting much more out of my lesson than I would have if he decided not to correct me. A teacher only corrects a student when they think that the student has the potential to become better.
