It then caused me to reflect on my own practices and efforts to help students foster a positive environment. What do I do to help students through their failures to learn from their mistakes? Do I brush off their frustration because I can't empathize? etc. It almost hurt thinking about my inability to connect with struggling students because I myself had never been one. So even though I wasn't a fan of the game, I am a fan of how it helped me grow as a reflecting practitioner.
