Define Your Dash # 22: Valuable Lessons I Learned at School

As a Student:
  • Hard work pays off.
  • Having good friends is imperative.
  • You can do things that are difficult, scary, and that force you to leave your comfort zone.
  • The way you treat people effects many aspects of your life.
  • When you try your hardest effort is recognized even if it isn't in the way you hoped for.
  • There is more to life than tests but the tests have to be taken seriously since they effect scholarship opportunities.
  • It is okay to change your mind.
  • Your choices and actions are your own. Claim them.
  • Act. Don't be acted upon.
  • You don't have to read the whole textbook. . . .
  • College is a survival of the fittest kind of thing. You show your potential employer that degree and they think to themselves, Wow, this person knows how to persevere.
  • It's possible to work and do school at once and be successful in both.
  • True love can be found in band class.
  • True love can be found at 12 (not recognized but found).
  • Go on vacation on pig fetus dissection day.
As a Teacher
  • Kids with parents home (or heavily involved) are more likely to succeed academically and socially.

  • Never confront someone you are currently super angry with. Cool down first.

  • Taking responsibility for your actions is a sign of maturity. Do it.
  • What is best for someone might be entirely wrong for someone else.
  • There is a time for asking and a time for telling.
  • You don't need 50 kids on Safety Patrol it's superfluous.
