Let me Fall! Inspirational Song & Performance by Cirque du Soleil
In this, I see so much of what happens when I work with students. Sometimes, we do our best to warn students and yet, they make mistakes and fall. But we love them anyway.
The classroom should be a place where mistakes (of the non life-threatening kind) are allowed and welcomed. If they already know it all, then why are we teaching it?
I needed to hear this song this week. It is just beautiful and I see what happens in my classroom and life in this beautiful performance by Cirque du Soleil.
Oh, and the singer, Josh Groban is only 27!
What does this moving song and performance mean to you?
