Default Re: Have you ever been embarrassed while teaching?

Had the zipper let me down too. Still to have problems with a skirt but I guess that would be on another thread!

I suppose my most embarrasing was when I kept on correcting a guy on his use of tenses in an elementary class. He kept using the past tense when talking about his wife and I'd correct him with the present. It hadn't even occured to me that I was making the mistake until he very quietly and politely informed me that his wife had died the previous year. I didn't know where to look.
