" I would say good luck but luck is unnecessary for those who are masters at what they do."

I say this to my students prior to taking a test or any assignment that they believe is challenging or thought provoking. I have also chanted this to myself prior doing anything that may be difficult or rigorous.

" Teaching the student knowledge is not just having them earn an A in your class - it's knowing that they learned it."
Written in 2006 by George D., Age 16 --- California
This is my personal quote. I would like teachers to make the student want to be in the class, not just sit there and wish him/her the best. As students, we see the teacher as our leader and want them to teach and help us to be motivated to learn, not just read the textbook or handouts. We learn what you teach and we use it - so make the best of this year.

" Don't let the only place you leave your mark be a bathroom wall."
Written in 2006 by Michele Hice --- New Mexico
This is a comment that I made to my students one day in class. I was trying to motivate them to try to do the best they could on everything they did. Some of the kids really liked it and it became kind of our classroom slogan.
