Most important lesson

Nov 11 What is the most important ‘lesson’ you want to teach your students?

I want my students to learn to accept that everyone makes mistakes, that it’s ok to do so, and it’ better to admit them.  I make a habit of being very open about mistakes when I make them in class.  I openly apologize when I make a mistake that affects the way class runs.  I want them to leave me knowing the proper response to making mistake or not doing things perfectly the first time is to try again and again and again if necessary.
