Just last week I had the honor to sit in a class with my students as a student. So often our students see their instructor as this person who either makes little to no mistakes, or knows their material so they will be outshined by their instructor. However today that was not the case, in the spirit of unity we practice our technique on the Mannequins and guess who gets the first thing wrong! The teacher, but it allowed our students to see that no matter the position in life we should all be so transparent in our efforts that even sometimes in our mistakes we are still teaching. Needless to say, the correction came from my student. It made me feel good because in that moment I saw competency! So yes this day we sat in a room and our roles suddenly became the same, and we learned together. I truly believe that at Pinnacle Career institute, the true nature of this organization has been and always will be the students and doing what is necessary so that they can learn. Needless to say, I passed my re-certification for CPR, but the overall role reversal made my day!
