| | Re: Have you ever been embarrassed while teaching?
Yes embarrrassing students will lose confidence in you fast if they pick it up. When I make spelling mistakes I cover it up by praising the students who have picked up the mistake and say, I did it on purpose to see if you were paying attention.
On Monday I was talking about the weather and temperature and drew a thermometer on the board. The student's started laughing. I caught on pretty fast why, because it looked like a penis.
I blushed and started laughing myself (hey we are all adults).
I rubbed it out and went onto clouds.
