See why professor and nationally renowned rugby coach Annemarie Farrell creates space to make mistakes for her students, her athletes—and herself.
You know, I think one thing I can say it's about my coaching here and my teaching is I'm always trying something new, you know, like, I'll come to class or I'll come to like, practice and be like, I had this idea for a game and drill that makes sense in my head. Let's see what happens. And then we'll do it. I'll be like, that was a colossal failure, wasn't it? And they're like, yeah, yeah, but it was fun. We tried something new. In my classes, generally, we do a lot of professional writing. So it's memo writing. It's how we take analytical data, make sense of it, and then use that to pursue recommendations for action for these organizations. And the learning is in the struggle. So in a lot of my classes, you get two or three times to redo an assignment. I'm not here to pursue a grade-- I'm here to pursue learning to pursue excellence. So, you know, we work with a student to get there. It's like, it's like, you know, I do a resume bootcamp with our students. And there's this moment where they realizethat dream they have is so much closer than they think. What fuels me is seeing that students 37th resume, and remembering what it wasn't number one and and, and, you know, I say we work towards badass written resume. Seeing what a student is like when they walk in my office and their resume that 48th time is finally great, right? That's the payoff. That's like taking the winning shot, right. I think that's what really fuels me.
