Radiohead drummer Philip Selway, when asked about how he gained more confidence as a singer, said:
My starting point for most things, no matter what, playing or anything, is that I don’t know what I’m doing. That’s a healthy place to be.Rolling Stone Article
It’s a healthy place to be for all of us. If you’re like me (and Dennis Dill), you are tired of hearing that this pandemic is an “unprecedented” time, but it truly is a unique time in our lives, and because of that, we’re all forced to figure it out day by day.
None of us got into teaching thinking we’d be in this situation, and yet here we are. Figuring it out. Both for our students and for our own children.
So embrace your unknowns… that you don’t know what you’re doing. Embrace being a learner.
It’s a healthy place to be.
