Supporting the Challenge of Growth

Thank you, teachers, for another school year. Thanks for challenging your students, watching over them as they struggled, and encouraging them to keep at it until they reached success.

As you probably know, your students watched as you struggled. They observed you keenly as a role model for how they should face their own challenges and setbacks.

This video is only 1:40, but it’s a powerful tribute to teachers who nail the big life lessons their students need: You will struggle, but you can do this. I’m behind you, and so are your peers. The brief conversation between these two students says it all.

You can download the guidebook for this video here.
