Yesterday in Sunday School I was reminded of some very wise words once said by former basketball player and coach John Wooden. He was quoted as saying, "Don't let what you can't do stop you from doing what you can do."
I am currently making a plan for the rest of the school year. There are many things that my students can do and some things that they can't . . . and now is the time to focus on what we can do and use those skills as the building blocks to help them reach the things they cannot YET do.
For the intermediate teachers out there preparing for "The Test" I hope that these wise words help push you forward and endure what can be the most stressful part of the year. We can do it!
