Success doesn't come to you...you go to it.
Don't try to fix the students, fix ourselves first. The good teacher makes the poor student good and the good student superior. When our students fail, we, as teachers, too, have failed.
Excellence is not an act but a habit. The things you do the most are the things you will do best.
What all good teachers have in common, however, is that they set high standards for their students and do not settle for anything less.
