The dream of reaching every student

"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope some day you'll join us..."

-John Lennon

Maybe it's just a pipe dream.

Maybe some students are just unreachable.

Maybe there are some we just can't help.

Maybe our responsibility is the kids who want to learn.

Maybe the unmotivated, resistant ones don't count.

Maybe their failure is not our fault.

But I don't think so.

I think if they fail, we fail.

I think everyone of them counts.

I think their motivation is our responsibility.

I think everyone can be reached. Everyone can be helped.

Progress may be slow, and none of this will be easy, but it'll be worth it.
