Through first hand experiences and stories of both failure and  success, Brian Aspinall, Daphne McMenemy, Matthew X. Joseph, and Christine Ravesi-Weinstein address four critical topics important in today’s educational environment: toxicity, failure, perspective, and voice. 

In our ever changing landscape, we must learn to see the value in failure. We must realize that perspectives make all the difference in the way we interact with our world. We must understand how toxicity can define who we become as educators and we must provide opportunities for all learners to experience growth and express themselves creatively. 

In a world that changes overnight, the only strategy guaranteed to fail is not trying something new. For this change to occur, we must be comfortable with discomfort and disrupt the status quo.
