MR. JOE McCLUNG
His last piece of advise was to never stop learning.
Volume 4 , Joe has two pieces of advice. "You gotta dance with who you came to dance with, and you should challenge yourself." This made a lot of sense. Joe had to cope with his feeling to please his peers. "As long as I stick to this rule and remember who I really work for then I should never divert down the wrong path." I agree that worrying is not positive, and the bottom line is to make sure the students are having fun and learning. Challenging yourself as a student in college and as an educator can be difficult. Motivation comes in waves. A strong support group and positive team environment can help the students stay motivated and want to learn. How do you motivate the children who do not want to learn? How can we help those that do not want to be helped? I feel that sometimes it takes a lot, but it comes down to the bottom line that you cannot give up and to keep working to appeal to everyone. Sometimes a good peer leader is great inspiration for unmotivated students. Again, keep smiling! :)
