Myles came upon the work of failure as a happy accident. She currently teaches at Boulder Improv Collaborative and at Front Range Community College. She noticed that the teachers would often feel frustrated by not knowing how their students were doing or that students with low grades wouldn’t ask questions or approach their teachers. This was occurring throughout all the departments. Myles took what she teaches in Improvisation classes and directed to teachers, educators, and staff of Front Range Community College. The results were that the teachers and staff found how these techniques could be used in the classroom as well with work colleagues.
