The law of averages says that 50% of all experiments fail. As you get better at something, you increase your chance of success. But if you find you are never failing, then you are not challenging yourself.

Thanks for being so honest. You know what? Everyone has days like you had, but few are honest enough to talk about them. When you are doing the type of work you are doing, an observer will not walk in to see 20 kids with their hands folded in front of them on the desk. By definition, you are doing the tough stuff.

I worry less about kids with spikey hair who are rolling on the ground in class. I worry about the adults whose anti-social behavior affects millions, like those who lie to the American people about the reason to go to war or who try to justify spying and torture.

You are doing a great job. And your students know it, too. Believe me, they do.
