Patience and Perseverance

Big picture
In Chinese, the character for perseverance is often the same as the one used for patience. Patience is quiet hope and trust that things will turn out right. You wait without complaining. You are tolerant and accepting of difficulties and mistakes. You picture the end in the beginning and persevere to meet your goals.


I'm told the word "perseverance" in Latin means, "one who sees through to the end". "one who doesn't yield." In English, it describes how we maintain our activity in spite of difficulties.


Our families- our Big Mamas, Abuelitas, Nana's, Paw-Paw's, Abuelitos, Grandpas, Tias, Tios, Uncles, Aunties-for generations, have persevered. It's in our blood.


As we march toward Interim Assessment Week (Midterms) remember to be patient with yourself- it takes time to learn new concepts. But do not yield- you must persevere. Make sure you attend your teacher's office hours and get help from the Resource Center.


Believing in You,

Dr. OL

Interim Assessment Week

Interim Assessment Week (a.k.a. Midterms) occur once a semester. It is a week when students are tested on everything they were taught for the entire semester. That week is coming (schedule below)! Stay ready so you don't have to get ready.

The EXPERT in anything was once a BEGINNER.
