The axiom "don't meet your heroes" does not apply to @angeladuckw - what a delight it was to get to be her student! . . We use our heroes to bring out better versions of ourselves. To model the things we don't know if we're capable of. Angela modeled the kind of instructor I want to be: comfortable, funny, humble, curious, and geez is she smart! . . When have you met someone you admire who exceeded your expectations and what did you learn from them? . . #characterlab #grit #gritparagon #angeladuckworth #hero #meetyourhero #tt #throwbackthursday
