"It's My Own Fault"

This morning I was observing my student-teacher with his Sociology class. They were going over a test they had taken the previous day. A girl in the class had missed a question, and she asked where the information to answer the question had been covered. The student-teacher explained to her, and finished by saying,"Ok?"

After hearing the explanation, the student's reply,"It's ok, it's my own fault."

My first thought was that her comment is not something you hear everyday, whether in class or just in routine everyday encounters. Refreshing.

The first step toward success is accept responsibility for your actions.

The best part of the story is that the student is a varsity girls basketball player!!
