  • Introduction

  • Reflection #1
    It is worth the effort to convince students that they can take responsibility for their educations.

  • Reflection #2
    If we are too rigid in our expectations and too narrow in our focus, we can actually close off the sunlight that would cause our students to flourish.

  • Reflection #3
    While I do my best to encourage the success of all of my students, I have had to accept that not all of them are reachable.

  • Reflection #4
    While some students fail because of irresponsibility, responsible students can become overwhelmed by their personal lives.
