CTQ and EdWeek blogger Justin Minkel shares how the many mistakes of his first year teaching led to a revolution in his approach to students. He learned to shift the focus away from himself discovering that when he did he "became a lot less self-conscious. It didn’t matter if my slacks were too baggy or my voice was too high. It wasn’t about me. It was about the students. It was about Jahlissa, and Xiomara, and Anthony. It was about Ivan, and Carlos, and Tionni." Take time to read Justin's story.
