My Challenge to You

Take a few minutes to watch the triumph of human spirit. Here is a group of boys that were laughed at, told they could not play futball because they did not have any place to play and even when they created their place to play they were still laughed at because they lacked skills. The boys did not give up or give in. They decided to create their futball pitch out of scraps. They developed their skills despite having loose boards, nails poking up, and goals that were half the size of regulation goals. Kevin Carroll, a person that inspires me, would say their haters became their motivators. These boys would not take no for an answer.


As it turns out everything that was an obstacle for these boys turned into their keys to success. They developed quick feet and reflexes, they were able to kick the futball into the smallest of goals, and when their boots became water logged they were able to play in their bare feet. They may have fell short in the tournament but in the end, they came out way ahead in their ability to create, their daring to dream, and their resolve in the face of adversity.


I am sure that you are wondering why I am sharing this with you? I mean after all what does a group of boys overcoming adversity to play futball have to do with the teachers and staff at AMCMS? Everything.


This story embodies what we do as educators. We are in the business of educating people but that education goes way beyond the abilities to read, write, and do arithmetic. We encourage our students to take chances. We want our students to dream big. We help them to overcome the obstacles to their success. We are developing growth mindsets in our students. I share this story with you to share an example of what it means to analyze, adapt, and overcome.


In education we have a lot of obstacles... we know what they are here at AMCMS. The real question is are you going to let those obstacles overcome you or are you going to analyze, adapt, and overcome your obstacles? Who knows, in the end those same obstacles may turn out to be the keys to your success!


Think. Achieve. Succeed.
