Middle School Humanities Teacher Ilana Long, inspired by former students to conquer a long held fear, wrote about her journey with tremendous results.
Her story, “The View from the Ground” was recently published in the book Chicken Soup for the Soul: Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone.
“This is a story about how my students inspired me by their example to step out of my comfort zone. In this case, it is about getting over my fear of falling; first by trying and failing at the trapeze at Seattle Circus Arts, and then on a zipline over the volcano valley in Arenal, Costa Rica,” Long said.
You can read hers and other inspiring stories in the recently published Chicken Soup edition.
