ERT013: Thomas Edison Center with Jena Ball and Marty Kelz - Not Being Perfect

Here at Thomas Edison Center, we met with Jena Ball and Marty Keltz to hear about their work with the Not Perfect Hat Club. This is an incredible book and wonderful message that we can share with our students about not being perfect. We feature Rosy Burke as our travel agent, and feature Draftback in our suitcase.
