Teacher quotes that resonated with me:


"In the end, educators best serve students by helping them be more self-reflective.  The only way any of us can improve- as Coach Graham taught me- is if we develop a real ability to assess ourselves.  If we can't accurately do that, how can we tell if we're getting better or worse?" (112)

"We need to let them know how to judge for themselves how they're coming along.  The great thing about working out at a gym is that if you put in the effort, you get very obvious results.  The same should be true of college." (113)
