365 Days of Wonder-February 19

February 19

The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. -Nelson Mandela

This quote would be perfect for my classroom! I want my students to take risks and know that falling is okay. We should not be afraid to fail and fall. When we fall, we learn and grow. It is important to fall so that we can rise stronger than before. An acronym I learned at a training fits this very well:

F-First

A-Attempt

I-In

L-Learning

What does this quote mean to you? Do you have a specific memory of falling and rising stronger?

 

I am a middle school English Language Arts and Social Studies teacher.
