Lessons Learned

I tell my students every day that I learn as much from them as they do from me. 

I used my school money to purchase an iPad for the students to use on the website. I had taken notes on the Note App, and was trying to find a way to upload the notes so they could be erased before the students took the iPad. 

While helping a student with his math, I did everything possible to save the note in another location. I configured email with no luck. I downloaded Google Drive and hit a brick wall. The cloud would not work at school.

After all of my unsuccessful attempts, I put my head in my hands out of desperation. The student looked up at me and said something so profound I was speechless.

"Ms. Mutterback, why don't you just take a screenshot and save the picture on your iPad?"

I learned a valuable lesson today. We can all arrive at the right answer, but the routes we take to get there may not always be the same
