When you think it doesn't matter if you fail or pass the test.
Keep in mind this simple reason you should always be your best.
While the whole world may not notice if you try to give your all,
There is a special person to whom it matters if you fall.
A little voice within you - which directs your thoughts each day -
Will make the final judgment if you won or lost today.

Never can you fail yourself if you give it all you've got.
The world extends a hand to you when you give life your best shot.
For all that really matters when you're finished with the test
Is not the final score at all - but did you do your best.

" Nothing you do for children is ever wasted."
Garrison KeillorMarch 1, 2004
" Only through education does one come to be dissatisfied with his own knowledge, and only through teaching others does one come to realize the uncomfortable inadequacy of his knowledge. Being dissatisfied with his own knowledge, one then realizes that the trouble lies with himself, and realizing the uncomfortable inadequacy of his knowledge one then feels stimulated to improve himself. Therefore, it is said, 'the processes of teaching and learning stimulate one another.'"
