Fear, Failure, and Fun in Education
The ever changing world of educations is filled with fear and failure. As educators, we are tasked with helping our students navigate these "F" words, but what about us? We need to face these "F" words with our own: Fun! Let's talk about adding Fun back into the classroom and fighting Fear and embracing Failure.
