One Classroom’s Epic Failure Bucket

It has been a couple of years since I met Jenifer Wells along my TCEA PD travels. She is one of those teachers that has epic-sized stories to tell about her classroom. And when you hear about her adventures, your ears perk up and your heart warms. Jenifer is the technology lab teacher in Seguin ISD. Her campus, Rodriguez Elementary, serves kindergarten through fifth grade students.

The story that stuck with me was her Epic Fail Bucket. Yes, you heard that right: EPIC and FAIL in one sentence. She tells me, “My kids need to understand that failing helps them grow and learn.” She continues with, “I don’t want to see failure as a negative or the ending of a process, I want them to see it as just one more step. So when you fail, I want you to do it EPICALLY and learn from it. Then share your epic fails and be proud of them so others can learn from you.”
