Thinking about Grit

I've been sitting here reflecting on the past school year and thinking about the books and videos that  inspired me.  I revisited Angela Duckworth's TED video about Grit.  There are two lines that I absolutely love...  "Failure is not a permanent condition..."  and "Start over again with lessons learned..." How powerful will our teaching be if we can convince students to consider these two things as an option.  I am going to challenge myself to be more gritty!   If you haven't seen this,  check it out!

Best wishes!
