Alexis Ayache I love this quote. I think it is important for us, as future educators, to realize that it isn't a competition. We need to try our hardest to be the best teachers to our students, not to beat the other teachers.
Often times the bullies and the kids who act out are so deprived of positive attention and reinforcement they will do anything for any type of attention. It takes a special teacher to get to the heart of these kids and make a difference in their lives.
