Well, last week on our weekly quiz, I totally bombed it. Big time. I got a whopping 5 out of 20. We graded each others papers so I knew I did poorly right away. And since there are only 8 people in the class, everyone knew I did crappy. I felt pretty crappy about it too. In fact, I was down right embarrassed. I figured I'd just have to suck it up and deal with it, but I was amazed to find that when I got my paper back yesterday, my professor wrote in the top corner that I could retake it.
I was amazed and so glad that my professor believes in second chances. She recognized that I had my answers completely backwards and that I could do better. She even wrote a whole new quiz for me. I retook it this morning and I got them all right! Yay! I'm think it's important that teachers recognize the potential students have and give second chances when necessary.
Have you ever been given a second chance?
