These are traits that teachers must possess as well. The year might be "running" by, but the patience to walk through it and try and make change is so important. Teachers are ambitious--taking on almost the complete growth and learning of 20 or so students each year. It always takes strength to pull through each year--even during an "easy" (rarely do those exist) year. Every teacher has the courage to keep moving forward year after year.
50 years ago, Dr. King gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech--the dream that I want to help keep alive. Thank you Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
