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.

Turning Criticism Into Feedback

Our little spies, in their exhuberance to "sneak" down the hall to see if the computer lab was open, were a little too sneaky. I got an email from a teacher kindly and appropriately letting me know that you were not too stealth and a little too distracting.

This was a great opportunity for us to talk about how easy it is to turn criticism, constructive or destructive, into fuel for personal growth. All we have to do when we receive criticism is to see it as receiving feedback on our performance.

The amazing things we can accomplish in this world when we see this world as trying to benefit us.

    Taneicea - I am very happy to see your messages. How are you? What school are you in? Let me know so I can call your teachers, here or in Cuba.

    Give your best wherever you are, and wherever you are will give its best back to you.

    And to my wonderful little spies - you can make all the mistakes you want, as long as you're learning from each one.

    Thanks for making me laugh
