How often do we meet the challenges that come at us everyday? Think about it everyday a new challenge comes and sometimes I think we just don't want to face them. So we turn around and ignore them. Challenge brings change and with change brings the unknown. I know that I have a hard time with change and that makes me wary of whats to come. I try to face my challenges and to show them that I am willing to see what is coming. Life is a challenge and most people choose to live it everyday and to see whats around the corner. We live our lives with an excitement and adventure but, we seem to dread other things. Why not see all challenges as adventures and maybe some good will come out of it. I know the challenge of life is a hard one to do especially after the loss of a loved one. And when a child is involved their whole world is upside down, but those that take the challenge and go on are stronger people for it.

I wanted to be a teacher but, due to some things I was not able to. The teachers I have come across today are not what I had when I was in school. My teachers at least most of them really cared for the students themselves not the paycheck. I am finding fewer and fewer teachers that love to teach for the pure enjoyment of it. What ever happened to when you teach you touch the future. I feel maybe the "old" pros are worn out and just do not have what it takes any more. That in my book is setting a child up for failure. It will mean more work for the child and more frustrations too especially if the child is struggling already. The no child left behind act is a good one but it needs to be enforced develope more programs for the individual needs of the kids in school today instead of throwing them in as a whole. Not every kid is the same but the system that is place seems to think it is and I for one am sick of seeing smart kids left behind. Where will our future be if our kids do not succeed?
