  • Behavior and instruction go hand in hand.
  • We focus so much on jobs and occupations instead of what opportunities can our students create.
  • In order for us to truly require excellence from our students, we have to stop operating in a state of mind of mediocrity.
  • I don’t care if you are jumping forward or taking baby steps forward, it is still progress.
