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.

Work Hard ~ Play Hard

Taylor, Florencia and Katie doing well enough on their in-class reading assignment to take time off and play a little Spanish air guitar to the music of The Gipsy Kings (I got to play just because I'm the teacher - and, well, I need to have fun too).

Shaquan knocking down walls that held him back only one day before.

Chad doing the same.

Katie doing the same.

100% of the class is caught up in their reading!!!!!!!!!

This is proof to me that you CAN change your life in 24 hours. In school all you have to do is go to bed smarter than you were when you woke up. This also applies to being stronger, happier, healthier, wealthier (whatever your goal is).

It IS possible. It IS being done. As children and adults we incorrectly learn this change has to happen in big ways, all at once, and tend to give up when it doesn't.

Big shots are just little shots who kept on firing.


The heroes of room 208 are doing it in just the first seven days of school. Let's grab hold of their courage and do it too as adults; seven days from now being much more than we are today!

You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.

    Thank you Mrs. Nick's mom - :-)I appreciate parent feedback more than you know.

    Belle - you are by far my superior in fashion and I gladly accept your advice in this area.

    Esha - shhhh. The new class hasn't picked up on the goldfish thing. Maybe I'm getting better (which might mean I'm getting less intelligent :-(

    Glad you both are still dreaming and doing big. It means I have done my job. Please continue it, it is the key to becoming your greatest selves.
