Now, this whole process is about trying and failing and trying again. I understand the concept of failing forward. Really, it’s what boosted my confidence to complete this project. But at some point, you sort of need to understand the concepts in order to make things work, right? That’s my problem. I’m terrified that I don’t understand some of these things. Self-discovery is a lovely thing, but don’t you have to explain some of the concepts to the kids you work with? That’s what makes these teachable moments — bringing the discovery around to understanding.
I lack confidence in this area.
