sure my students are given every opportunity to succeed – and to me, that means that they have the space to experiment, fail, try again and figure things out. I want a learning environment that fosters creativity and innovation where my students think of themselves as problem solvers and find ways to make something from nothing. Every activity I do will help students focus on at least one of the 4 C's: Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and Creativity.
