“Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting—in the trying, not the triumph.”

“Not all of our best students are our “A” students. I have had “C” students who I consider excellent  students because they were so engaged into the educational process. I really don’t think it has to do with a letter grade, it has to do with enthusiasm.” – Charles Rineheimer – NPR – Talk of the Nation Interview LINK HERE: The Students That Keep Teachers Inspired

What has inspired me? Hard Work – New Thinking, Hallways…
