7: Failure Means ‘Not Yet’

Educators can get really down on themselves throughout their career. There are so many factors that make up their feeling of worth that they get distracted and bogged down by any ‘No’ that comes their way. But mistakes and failures aren’t actually as bad as they seem. In fact, they are a GREAT thing. Listen to this episode to hear why.


  • Your journey as a teacher will not be perfect.
  • Wear your scars proudly because without failure, you can’t be great.
  • Embrace ‘No.’ It’s not ‘No’ forever. It’s ‘No’ for now.
