You are so brave, Laura! I’m blown away!
You don’t have to answer, but I’m curious about your academia experience. I, myself, was TA for a number of years, as an undergraduate and graduate, and worked as a proofer for two academic historical journals too.
I also taught fitness classes for a almost two decades–one of many part-time jobs to get through graduate school. 🙂 So, with being an instructor in two different fields, I can definitely relate to feeling like “I couldn’t make mistakes, that I had to know what I knew.” Yes! I so relate. So with that in mind, I’m here for you if you need extra support in this area. I’m here no matter what.
Let me know how “failing” goes for you and if you found some happy accidents or were just annoyed and/or frustrated. 🙂
