I lost my temper tonight at work. I didn't yell or anything, but I was very short with a student. And now I feel guilty. For being short with her. For telling her she should have known this from months ago. And for judging her for something just because I don't understand how it is possible to not understand things I find so easy.
I have a hard time. I never know if people don't get things because they are lazy or bored or dumb or what. And I know I shouldn't judge them for something just because it is not what I would do. But, I have a really hard time with someone who is repeating something they have learned months ago and that should be second nature to them by now. I mean, if half way through Grade 2 a kid looked at the teacher and said "What is "F" again??" wouldn't there be a problem here?
So tomorrow I am going to apologize. In the mean time, I am going to let good christian guilt eat at my stomach. No wonder I have ulcers.
