I know it's been a shift for many teachers, but everyone has jumped in and it's exciting to walk around the building and hear teachers questioning and sometimes letting students fail, but being right there when they do and brushing them off and getting them back into the game. I'm so proud to be a part of a school where people aren't afraid to take risks and try new things. It's amazing what the kids can do when you give them some space and let them lead the way!
