Hi! My name is Najia Stallworth and I teach 7th-grade social studies and language arts at Montgomery Central Middle School. My philosophy is simple. If you want to succeed at anything in life you must do the following 4 things: Hustle. Grind. Fail. Repeat. (Wait. Did a teacher just says she believes in failing?) Yes, I did but hear me out!
The great Gen X philosopher, Will Smith, said failure is a massive part of success! HE IS 100% CORRECT!! We have to reframe our thinking about what it means to fail. We need to seek it out, take risks, and then learn everything we can from our "flop". This is true regardless of what goal we are pursuing. Every successful adult I know has fallen on their butts, made more mistakes, and dusted themselves off more times than they can count. 😉
So yes, we are going to fail a lot this year but we are going to do it in the most exciting, beautiful, and powerful ways possible. 🙂
