Need for speed

My daughter went tubing for the first time today. She was tentative at first and only agreed to try it if she could go slowly. Little by little, her weariness turned to confidence and her smile grew as she beckoned for more speed.
Whether on the water or teaching the Common Core, it seems as though some of us can jump into new experiences at full throttle but many of us need to build our speed gradually. How do we respect each other’s need for speed?
