my own weaknesses shows me just how much work I still have
in front of me before I become the master teacher I
envision. I have noticed through the years that the work I
do to enhance my own personality and character is directly
tied to the development of my students. The better I develop
myself, the more my students achieve.
So, how do we arrive at this kind of success in the
classroom? I have spent eighteen years in education figuring

Self-improvement as an educator is where success will start.
Gaining self-confidence, self-control, and self-esteem will
be your focus. Being in control of one person will allow you
to have control of thousands if that is what you want to do.
Small class or large, it does not matter. You are the only
one you can improve with certainty. From there, it is a
matter of having the right tools, keeping them sharp, and
keeping your optimism high.

ago we began our focus on change.
