Things I'm Really Bad At.
for me, it's drawing. like, i'm terrible. when i was student teaching, my supervisor came to observe a math lesson once and gave me the criticism that the roses i drew for my third graders to demonstrate solving a word problem didn't really look like flowers.
and then, i was recently substitute teaching in a preschool classroom and had to draw something for one of my students, and i immediately got nervous. because you know kids, they don't sugar coat what they think. and this kid didn't. when i handed the drawing over and acknowledged it's poor quality, my four-year-old student looked at it, and then up at me and said "yeah, you're not a good draw-er." i know kid, i know.
fortunately, there are things i'm much better at than drawing. and if nothing else, i figure my lack of skill in this particular area can lead to some fun stories to tell, however embarrassing.
so what's something that you are really bad at?
