Diana Laufenberg is a teacher in Philadelphia, USA. She has taught Grades 7 – 12 and examines some surprising things she has learned about teaching… and learning, including making mistakes.

“We deal right now in the educational landscape with an infatuation with the culture of one right answer that can be properly bubbled on the average multiple choice test. I am here to share with you, it is not learning.” – Diana Laufenberg
