"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
| Oh… I whack the palm of my hand against my forehead!! How could a|
teacher do that to a kid? Kids worship their teachers and believe everything

I felt so bad for him. I wanted to just give the guy a big hug! I told him that was
just a bunch of hooey and that his teacher was wrong! (I’d like to have a little
talk with that teacher too!)
I kept encouraging him and guess what? He got a “B” that semester!
So, he took me the next semester for Intermediate Algebra… During that
class, I started to see him actually helping other students with their homework
before class started. He was really feeling good about himself and he was
feeling good about the math! He got an “A” that semester. So, he took me the
NEXT semester for College Algebra… another “A!” With this success, he
changed his major to Business and took Calculus with another teacher and
ripped another great grade. I was so proud! (sniff)
