Facebook Live Series with Colleen Cruz: Risk. Fail. Rise.

My Post (1)We all make mistakes, but it's what we do in response to them that makes the difference. Author Colleen Cruz's book Risk. Fail. Rise. A Teacher's Guide to Learning from Mistakes is all about just that. Handling mistakes well and actively learning from them is important not only for our own growth, but for the growth of our students as well. When they see teacher's modeling a mistake-welcoming mindset, they will feel empowered to take risks.
