Ready, Set, FAIL! - Now available on Amazon

Published about 2 years ago • 1 min read

I'm super excited to share that my latest book Ready, Set, FAIL! is now available on the Amazon book store and is already #1 amongst new releases in four categories! This book literally took me a lifetime to write as my own personal stories of failure and risk-taking are intertwined with research and strategies for the classroom or professional learning. Failure can be a great teacher and too often we don't provide enough opportunities for learners (both young and old) to fail and grow. Playing it safe can create barriers for creativity and innovation which I call out in the book.

Throughout the book, there are also multiple opportunities to reflect on your own risk and life failures and how they shaped who you are as a person. Creating a learning environment that embraces thoughtful risk-taking and failure helps create a culture of innovation. I hope you take a moment to check out my book and feel free to share with others that might be struggling with their own failures.

After all, it's not how you fall down, but how you stand up!

Be sure to follow me on Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, or my Facebook page...
