“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Michael Jordan 

Advice to teachers in their first year of teaching: Enjoy the fact that you don’t know what you don’t know. Focus your energies on connecting with your students and letting go of mistakes as fast as you learn from them. Final words of advice: Don’t try and wing it. Planning pays off- it’s how teachers practice before game time.
