" I can teach any student in a chair."

As a College Instructor for over twelve (12) years, I needed a brief motivational quote to remind me that I can only teach students that are present for class. Furthermore, I must reinforce the belief that I can teach *any* student in my class. As an aside, the qualities that make up a good student are:
1.Strong Attendance
2. Few Tardies
3. Dependable Transportation
4. Survival Cash
5. Stable Childcare
6.Livable Housing
7. Homelife Support
8. Good Attitude
= Good Grades!
