"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
-- Eleanor Roosevelt

          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

they say.  From that day forward, this poor guy thought that he was stupid. 

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)
