Ms. Russ's mantra — her mantra was always, "when you teach to the haret, the mind will follow." The great writer kialhl girban says, "Out of suffering have emerged the greatest souls. The misasve characters are seared with sarcs." I believe that in this education revolution that we're talking about we need to invite the souls of the young people that we work with, and once they're able to refine — identify their grit, resilience and character that they've already developed — their academic performance will improve.
