Disrupt the Status Quo
Code Breaker, Inc./2022
Through first hand experiences and stories of both failure and success, Brian Aspinall, Daphne McMenemy, Matthew X. Joseph, and Christine Ravesi-Weinstein address four critical topics important in today’s educational environment: toxicity, failure, perspective, and voice.
In our ever changing landscape, we must learn to see the value in failure. We must realize that perspectives make all the difference in the way we interact with our world. We must understand how toxicity can define who we become as educators and we must provide opportunities for all learners to experience growth and express themselves creatively.
In a world that changes overnight, the only strategy guaranteed to fail is not trying something new. For this change to occur, we must be comfortable with discomfort and disrupt the status quo.
Fighting Your Inner Voice
Code Breaker, Inc./2021
Regardless of the specifics of your journey, we have all struggled to fight an inner voice laden with self-doubt and criticism. So often that voice isolates, taunting us with a narrative that can be difficult to fight. Filled with stories of struggle, pain and triumph, this book sets out to inspire others to find the strength to continue their own battles with an inner voice desperate to bring them down. Whether addiction, disease, infertility, or abuse, there is always a light; always someone else fighting a similar darkness. Fighting your inner voice will bring that darkness to the surface; help you realize the feelings you've had and the doubts you've experienced are not uncommon. It will validate your emotions, empower your ego and make you feel like your world is a little less lonely. It's a space to be heard, and more importantly, a space to be understood.
