Let me Fall! Inspirational Song & Performance by Cirque du Soleil

In this, I see so much of what happens when I work with students. Sometimes, we do our best to warn students and yet, they make mistakes and fall. But we love them anyway.

The classroom should be a place where mistakes (of the non life-threatening kind) are allowed and welcomed. If they already know it all, then why are we teaching it?

I needed to hear this song this week. It is just beautiful and I see what happens in my classroom and life in this beautiful performance by Cirque du Soleil.

Oh, and the singer, Josh Groban is only 27!

What does this moving song and performance mean to you?

  1. First of all let me say that I have been a stalker of your site for quite some time… so it is about time I comments. THis song makes me thing of the relationship I have with my teenage daughter. So much of what we do as parents is guidance, but it also is learning when to let go and let them fall…easier said than done!

  2. Just FYI… Josh recorded this song when he was just 17 or 18 years old, and it appeared on his debut, self-titled album (which has been one of my perennial favourites since I bought it almost ten years ago).

  3. I have just posted the video and linked to your post on this topic as it sat with what I had posted a little while ago about the need for our students and teachers to make mistakes and learn from them, not having a culture of fear of mistakes but accepting and using them to our advantage. Great clip.
