Each day at the OLC we like to push just a bit harder so we can reach beyond the scope of failure and see success. Nothing is more rewarding than trying a new approach to an old problem and have students "GET IT". But I must say watching students struggle and fight through a problem is pretty rewarding- even if they do not finish the first time. The failure that happens in the struggle is precious and if we revisit that failure we can work through the problem to find success. It can be difficult as an adult to watch students struggle, however we have to check our "fear of their failure". There are days when I just want to give everyone the answer, but I know if I do...they will never work through their fears and grow.

Food for thought:
Do you challenge yourself to such an extreme, that it is possible you will fail? How often? Do you seek opportunities to grow through failure? Or do you walk the line to where you know you will always be successful?
Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing your #NoFearofFailure @nisdolc
