Stuart's Spectacular Students

This is dedicated to my amazing students. The goal is for each and every one of them to feel unstoppable by the time they walk out of the classroom door for the final time in May. This chronicles their journey; their own Chronicles of Self-Actualization.

Twenty Battles for Twenty Hearts

Waking from a sleep that seems much too short
Slowly stepping across the den floor in the dark

Stretching each muscle that is sore
Shaking the stiffness from each joint

The great war for the greatness in man
Always takes a lot out of him


Looking out from the opening of his den
How many dawns he needed to draw strength from to fight again

It's been twenty battles
For twenty hearts

Each one has been won somehow
Each one being a loving work of art


The war is now over
All battles have been fought

Twenty minds ablaze with all they've become
And not one forgot

Hearts
Minds
Spirits
Souls

Roaring loudly as they depart

Hearts
Minds
Spirits
Souls

Feeling unstoppable in their hearts

The impossible dream has been dreamt and done
The lion looks out at this new dawn.......

.......And roars loudly in the early morn

*This is for you guys, who yesterday got back the results of the state NRT reading and math tests. The class average was an "A" on BOTH.

Getting you to FEEL unstoppable was hard enough. Giving you the skills to actually BE unstoppable was a whole new level of effort.

I am tired. But I am happy.
