“The non-motivated students need just one little inch of success, and the same goes for teachers.”

“Don’t forget, when you’re going into the hospital on that stretcher and the sheet is coming up over your eyes and as you’re looking up….there’s one of your students.”

“A balanced life, a balanced everything, and a balanced classroom. That’s our goal.”
