Well now that the Olympics are over I can get myself ready to start teaching… It amazes me that some of these olympians are the same age as my students. Gabby Douglas is 16 years old - the same age as my sophomores and Missy Franklin is 17 years old, she is going into her senior year of High School with 5 gold medals. I think that is incredible and I only wish my students could channel that kind of dedication into their education. Obviously- the drive and dedication brought forth by Olympians such as Gabby and Missy is above and beyond most people have, but I want a fraction of that from my students. It is clear that it is possible to achieve great things at a young age, how can I get my students to recognize that ability within themselves?
