Stretch zone

Javier showed us how learning and making memories happen in the stretch zone. Not the comfort zone. We realized we even sometimes prematurely put ourselves in the panic zone- when our brains stop thinking. When the river tour guide told us to jump into the water from what felt to be "30 ft" (recalled mr. Shapiro) I told Olivia not to worry but that he was joking. She giggled reassured only to find out he was indeed serious and seconds later Sr. Shapiro was leaping into the river. The day shifted in that moment- stretch zone here we come.
