I always smile when I see some post or picture with a “What’s your superpower?” thought. This is one of my favorites because I do think teaching requires superpowers.
But the realist (pessimist?) in me always thinks, “But if you have superpowers, what’s your kryptonite?”
I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately…kryptonite…the things that trip us up, zap our powers, make us stumble…our ultimate natural weaknesses.
It’s never the big things that get us. We always seem to be prepared for those. It’s the little things – the pebble in the shoe not the boulder in the road.
Not sure I’m ready to name my kryptonite…but acknowledging it is the first step, right?
