Teaching at its best is a messy process. Messy means we're human, we make mistakes, and often when we're trying something for the first time, we have no idea how it's going to turn out. But it's only when we step out of the mold and allow a little disarray that learning and growth begin to happen. Getting Messy is a friend and guide for those times when you find yourself feeling trepidation about stepping into an unknown place. Shakti Gawain exclaimed, "I love this book " Jennifer Louden called Getting Messy one of her favorite books on teaching, and many teachers of all kinds have proclaimed Getting Messy to be "brilliant" inspiration. It is especially helpful for those who teach, train, coach, mentor, or work in some way with other humans.
