The bottom line is that I believe in experiences - the good as well as the bad. It is through these experiences that we learn, grow, and really embrace the true meaning of education. I believe in providing students every opportunity to be successful while at the same time encouraging development through trial and error. A quote I love simply states:
Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
Mary Anne Radmacher
No matter what your experience may be, courage may be the best teacher you ever have.
