      Audra's Answer

      "I'd feel like I failed my student. There are many reasons that a student might fail, and I'd look at whether there was anything that I could've done better. My students deserve the best from me. Moving forward, I would do my very best to intervene before anything resulted in a failing grade. In my class, I even allow students to make corrections on their assessments to improve their grade because if they are willing to put in extra work to better understand the material, their grade should reflect that effort and achievement."
