What's this, Mommy? What was inside, Mommy?
With vulnerability comes a lot of poop.
And so, like Carl, we are working together to turn a new page, to imagine a new life for our family—one in which we do not ignore the reality of Kariann’s illness but at the same time do not let it define our future. This is much easier to say than it is to do. How do we begin then? We are trying to make each day as good as it can possibly be without thinking too much about the bigger picture just yet. From there, I think we just keep swimming. – Josh Eyler
Questions to consider:
- How do we need to be vulnerable in our teaching?
- Are there boundaries on both ends?
- What kind of vulnerability do you see being required when asking for and processing feedback from students?
When deciding whether to take the risk:
- Is it related to the course?
- Does it help model for my students the importance of failure in shaping our learning and our lives? What does it look like to integrate my experience in a way that brings real life
- Can I share it and still model resilience in our professional roles?
- What do I anticipate that the students' responses to it might be?
- Will it help me be more approachable to my students?
