"Every single child wants to be successful. The problem is, if they can't be successful at being successful, they'll be successful at screwing up. Our job as educators is to change the latter to the former."

The True Power of Teachers

As we begin yet another new school year it is wise to remember that not only can this new year be a new beginning, but each day can be a new beginning. Of course, paraphrasing Carl Bard, you can never return to yesterday and do it over, but you can always start from today to make a better tomorrow.  That is the true gift of teachers: to be able to reset the clock, to start again, and to keep on starting again until the student has learned to start themselves.
