Teachers : normalize apologizing and admitting when you don't know something.

@MadisonPayton2 Not only does this strengthen the student-teacher relationship, but it humanizes the teacher and shows the student that it was a great question.

@MadisonPayton2 I second this for parents too. My kids need to know I’m human and always learning.

@MadisonPayton2 @MarilisaJimenez Yes. And admit the kids may understand the technology better than you do. Once you enlist their help, you model cooperative learning … and get your stuff working.

@MadisonPayton2 It is an important moment for students to understand that we are still learning and growing as well!

@MadisonPayton2 Only a bad teacher needs this advice. (I am retired after 42 years as a public high school teacher.)

@MadisonPayton2 @whataboutty As a Comm. teacher I try to highlight mistakes I make while speaking to my students to show that no one really cares if mess up some. Also, wrote a few test questions that weren’t good, and after grading, gave them credit for them and told them my questions were bad. My fault.

@MadisonPayton2 @whataboutty Both seem to have gone a long way with my students. Really shows that you respect them.

@MadisonPayton2 Literally apologized to my class today! I explained a group activity poorly and it made the whole thing a bummer. We’re trying again tomorrow (it was the end of the day).

@MadisonPayton2 I find those moments as great conversation starters. I’ve had kids throw curves on lit I’ve taught for years.
